confused Scratch on windscreen...any easy way to repair?

Hey All,

My windscreen has suffered a scratch from the wiper arm!
Any easy way to buff/get it out? Its not that deep.

IVe heard of using toothpaste on it?? Does that really work?

Any help appreciated

Have a look at the AU site there is a section on detailing which talks about different products for removing scratches , also try a windscreen place they should be able to polish it out with a buff or look up glass polishers in the yellow pages.

i was told to try some cutting compound on it...as that is a mild abrasive?
