Crack open a walnut or Brazil nut. The natural oil within the nuts can help you get scratches out of your wood table.
Rub the walnut or Brazil nut over the scratches in your wood table. For best results, rub in the same direction as the wood grain.
Wipe down the area with a soft cloth to help blend the natural oil of the nut and conceal the scratches.
Use a felt-tip touch-up marker if the nuts weren't able to do the trick. This is a better option for larger scratches. Choose a touch-up marker that matches the finish of your wood table, and use it to color in the scratches.
Color in a scratch with clear nail polish if the clear finish of your wood table has been scratched. Sand over the polish with 600-grit sandpaper once the table is completely dry.
Things You Will Need
- Soft cloth
- Touch-up marker
- Clear nail polish
- Wipe the felt-tip touch-up marker off any part of the table that is not scratched right away. It can look awkward if it's allowed to dry on non-scratched areas.
