    Has anyone tried the new scratch removing product called the nanomagic cloth? According to the manufacturer, it "contains super fine metallic powder (sodium ions) that buff out scratches without damaging the paint. It also removes oxides from the surface of the paint and keeps it looking newer and protects it for a longer period of time than if you were to just polish it with a regular cloth."

    The cost for this cloth is a hefty $29.95.

    A good new product or snake oil?

    I think you should order one and give us a report
    Just don’t use it on something you care about just in case it f#%*s it up ;)

    Haven't tried it and don't intend to. I couldn't find anything close to a legitimate review of them online, and what I did find leads me to believe that people who give positive reviews of them truly have no clue about paint technology and/or what actually constitutes a "scratch" let alone what they are actually witnessing when using these magic cloths. What many people refer to as scratches are actually light deposits of foreign material on the surface of their car's finish. These "scratches" are generally little more than scuff marks like the ones left on your tile floor by hard rubber or plastic heels. They are easily removed by rubbing with the slightest amount of friction such as with a paper towel either moistened or not. A quick wipe with some auto polish or even a cleaner wax eliminates them instantly. Actual "scratches" are damaged areas of the finish where material (clear coat, base paint etc) have actually been removed to some degree. In these cases, polishes and glazes basically fill minor scratches to a degree that hides them, again to a degree.
    My guess is these pre-moistened towels are simply cheap cloths that are moistened with something along the lines of a cleaner wax or glaze. Both will remove surface deposits as well as "hide" minor scratches temporarily but that's about it.

    I think this is just hype and the excellent reviews are from friends or on line influencers. The claim of using mineral oil reminds me of all the You Tube videos showing how WD40 gets rid of scratches. The oils are just covering the scratch's clearcoat but it doesn't last long as the oil substance deteriorates. What bothers me about this particular website is that there aren't any tabs for instructions to apply, support and/or Q&A.

    Lets face it, there isn't a magical fix. When a clearcoat finish is scratched, you either have to fill it with a clear paint or if the scratch isn't deep (your fingernail doesn't catch on it) it may be carefully sanded down and polished. Some of those scratched can be eliminated with a polishing compound that isn't real aggressive. It's similar to a cut and buff where the clearcoat is carefully sanded (turns lighter in color than the actual paint) and then buffed out. If you can catch your fingernail on the edge of the scratch, it's down to the base coat paint and will need to be touched up accordingly.
    Just my opinion...

    I've grown wary of on line reviews. Not long ago I read a review on a set of all-season tires. Some girl down south said they were good in the snow! WOW. My experience with clear coats is to take it to a pro to get it fixed even for buffing

    * Must be similar to 'snake oil'. People are trying every which way to take your money. Do not believe it.
