How do I get rid of scratches on plastic? Answered

I have been wanting to get some minor scratches off of the top emblem on my GameCube to make it look nice. I was just wondering if there is any way to do this. Preferably a home remedy that doesn't require any special order chemicals.

A little bit of polish should do the trick.

Use a plastic headlamp lens cover polishing kit, available at many car parts stores or Harbor Freight Tools. Those kits use a polishing wheel chucked in a drill motor. Rubbing it by hand will take . . . . f o r e v e r.

I took a close look at the signs of life use. The Robot in you wants to erase
the built up precious Mana from a clean good looking object ;-)

Mana which is a Pacific islander concept of an impersonal force or quality
that resides in people, animals, and (debatably) inanimate objects.

Try using a whitening toothpaste on a soft, damp cloth. An old T-shirt works well.
Rub it in with small circular motions until the scratches are no longer visible, then buff to a shine.
