How do I remove scratches from the windscreen?

Hi,
On the left hand side (right hand drive car) of my windscreen is a scratch that's been done by the end of the wipe blade, it's about 2-3" long and
about 1" wide, looks a bit like some sandpaper has been caught under the wiper blade.
Is there a product on the market that will let me polish scratches out of glass?
Thanks in advance
Daz

D'oh!
I noticed T-Cut make a scratch remover and it does say it works on glass, perhaps worth a try...
I only collected the car on Friday (Ex Demonstrator) so perhaps it's going back...
Cheers

It works very well on clear plastic (an old modeller's trick from when I was a kid, IIRC)
Would have thought that glass would be too hard, though - I'd look at a specialist glass polish, myself (Autogylm as a first try, or something that a glazier would recommend).
Assumption: a *very* light scratch

Well... toothpaste IS a mild compound so with enough elbow grease (think big polishing machine) you might do it.
But for glass, you'd want a range of compounds to that you can get it quick then smooth over to a "glass" finish.
Not really something you can do without a machine.

www.screwfix.com & do a search for "glass polishing kit". About 20 & works pretty well - I think the cutting agent is called Cerium Oxide IIRC.
You use an electric drill & you have to be careful to keep it moving & keep the thing wet enough so that you don't get a localised heat build up which can weaken the glass.
I used it on the inside of a big aquarium with good results & that's made of plate glass which is very hard. It took quite a while though - over an hour to do an area about 9" by 9". I've seen the same kit advertised for polishing windscreens. All that said, as a general rule, if the scratch(es) are deep enough such that you can feel them with a fingernail then they are reckoned to be too deep to polish out.
