    okay so i got an idea to remove scratches
    but i just wanted to make sure i wasn't doing something
    stupid b4 i attempt it.
    so my fridge came with this stainless steel polish/scratch remover thingy
    so i was wondering if that would work.

    my second theory is
    my dad has some car wax in the garage
    i was wondering if i should use that to like remove the scratches
    or if it could

    thanks for your thoughts
    please dont flame me if im being stupid.

    Both of those might be too powerful and will literally burn off the finish of the chrome backing, something less strong will work a lot better.

    car wax? hmmm, don't think so, and the stainless steel polisher isnt for the ipod i would imagine, because your refrigerator is probably not chromed stainless steel, like the ipod.


    if it is, then it might work but i dunno.

    does anyone know of some around the house items that would remove light scratches, besides a banana peel or toothpaste, cause i don't think they work. Unless someone could disprove me

    I used metal polisher, and a cloth, and rubbed it for like 20 minutes, it seemd to work, but it could have been sanding away the back to make it level with the scratches i dont know.

    I tried it on my 3g nano, not my touch of course, but same back.

    ive heard that toothpaste, the kind without gritty stuff in it works pretty good. i use it on my 360 games and dvds all the time. To make it shine i would just use some dilluted windex.

    Yeah windex does make a good shine, that might work.

    Everyone use to tell me Brassco was the way to go... To be honest, that crap never did anything besides make it shiny and the cloth used black.. =/

    To be honest there isn't many solutions, that won't damage or fade the finish. I guarantee if you use anything to harsh, that serial number, Apple logo and all the other painted stuff on the chrome surface will fade, and disappear. At that point, if something happen, Apple would void your warranty - No serial number, no warranty.


    My iPod is still mint now after 5 months - you guys should have done the same, got a case. =P
