How to Remove Scratches from Plastic Eyeglasses?

Answer

You will need glass etching compound, liquid furniture polish, metal polish, cigarette ashes, soft cloth and soap. Cover both sides of your plastic lenses with a thick coating of glass etching compound and let it sit for five minutes before washing it off with cold water. Use a rag with liquid furniture polish and rub it into the lenses before rinsing them in warm soapy water before repeating. By now most of the scratches are off but if it is badly scratched apply metal polish using a soft cloth and rub it in before leaving it on for 3-4 minutes and then wash them off. You could also rub cigarette ashes into the deep scratches before rinsing them off and do it twice although it is not as effective.
