I’m a car expert and my cheap hack fixes scratches on ANY car for less than £1 – but people are divided | The Sun

THERE'S nothing worse than finding a scratch on your pride and joy – but this TikTok user might have a cheap way to fix them.

In a video uploaded to the social media site, user kingkhieu shows a simple trick for getting rid of scratches – and it'll cost next to nothing.

The video has been watched more 500,000 times and has people divided in the comments despite it seeming to work.

It starts with kingkghieu watching a video of somebody taking a tennis ball and rubbing it on a scratch in the paint of a car.

It cuts away before we can see the outcome and kingkhieu rushes to grab a tennis ball and heads into the garage to try it himself.

In the garage, he has two lovely Ford Mustangs and for a second you think he's going to start scratching the paint.

Thankfully he doesn't – instead, he points out a scratch on the front wing of one of the cars that he's clearly annoyed about.

He takes his tennis ball and rubs it on the scratch for a few minutes, only for the scratch to be dramatically improved.

The ball's exterior fibers seem to act as a polishing cloth, breaking down the sharp edges of the scratch making it less visible to the human eye.

It's worth pointing out that a tennis ball isn't going to fill your scratch in and fully correct it, nor is it going to solve very deep or very wide scratches.

However, light scratches in the lacquer such as the one in video can be made significantly better to the naked eye and will save on costly resprays.

Given the average tennis ball costs well under £1, that's a very cheap fix.

But people were divided in the comments having tried it for themselves.

Popson said: "I stopped following you since you post fake stuff."

While Lil_B21 said: "Lol it made my Porsche look way worse."

However, WakinBugok agreed that: "It works."
