A good set of luggage can last you a lifetime, but keeping it in good condition isn't always the easiest task. Baggage handlers toss luggage around all day long, and your hard-shell luggage may get a scratch in the process. Fixing the scratch takes a little bit of creativity, but if the scratch isn't too deep, you should be able to get it out with a few basic techniques.
Things You'll Need
- Cotton cloths
- Soft toothbrush
Wet the cloth with water, then rub the wet cloth across the scratches to remove any light surface scratches or oil stains.
Lightly run the eraser across the scratches, working the eraser down the length of the scratch. Wipe off any residue from the eraser using the cloth.
Apply a small amount of toothpaste to the scratch. Work the toothpaste over the scratch with the toothbrush, working the brush in a circular motion. Wipe off the toothpaste using the cloth.
