To add to this, the next step is usually spending more money to get a touch-up to make the scratch disappear.
However, unbeknownst to many car owners, there is a way to fix a scratch without spending money taking it to a garage. You can fix the scratch at home, right in your driveway.
Here's what you'll need:
• Warm Water
• Masking tape
• 3,000 grit sandpaper
• 5,000 grit sandpaper
• Car wax
In total, it will only cost a couple of bucks to buy all the items you need, and you may even have some of them at home already.
