Author: Rob Mobberley

Best Car Scratch Remover ProductsOver the years we have tried many of the car scratch remover products that we have either stocked or have been sent as samples. Some of those we have stuck with and added to our range and others we have let go, either from our own experience or the feedback of customers.

So which of those we seen or our customers provided feedback on do we consider amongst the best car scratch remover products available?

Before we look at the list there is a general rule of thumb that is used when looking to use an “off the shelf” car scratch remover product on your car.

That rule is when gently sliding your thumb nail over the scratch in your paintwork if your thumb nail “jarrs” i.e catches in the scratch it is generally considered too deep to be effectively removed by use of a hand applied car scratch remover product alone.

Here we look at our list of top 5 best car scratch remover products that can be used by hand.

Some of theme can also be used with a car polisher, but as most car owners do not own such a machine we have concentrated our list on the best car scratch remover products that can be used by hand.

We have also concentrated on products aimed at “removing” the scratch, rather than “filling” it:

  1. Meguiars Scratch X 2.0
  2. Farecla G3 Professional Scratch Remover Paste
  3. Meguiars Ultimate Compound
  4. Poorboys SSR2/2.5
  5. A1 Nano Tech Scratch Remover
