How To Repair Scratched Chanel Sunglasses

Oh no! Did your favorite Chanel sunglasses just experience an unexpected skirmish with your keys?

It’s like seeing your favorite novel with a torn page, isn’t it? But hey, don’t despair! Because just like that book, there’s hope for your beloved shades. I'm here to guide you step by step to get your Chanel sunglasses back to their former glory!


1. The Emotional Stages of Finding a Scratch:

A. Denial and Isolation

When you first see that scratch, it's like, "No way, that’s just a smudge!" Wipe, wipe, nope... still there.

B. Anger

"Who dared to leave the keys next to my precious Chanel shades?!"

C. Bargaining

"If I could just wear them at an angle, maybe no one would notice?"

D. Depression

Hugging sunglasses "Why, oh why, did this happen?"

E. Acceptance

Okay, it's scratched. What next?


2. Understanding the Scratch

A. Surface or Deep Dive?

First things first. Is the scratch a mere flesh wound or a deep gash? Sometimes what you think is a scratch is just a smudge. Lucky you if that’s the case. But for those genuine scratches, let's embark on this repair journey.


3. Gather Your Tools

Picture this: A warrior gearing up for battle. That's you. Your battlefield? That pesky scratch. So, let's assemble the arsenal:

  • A soft microfiber cloth
  • Warm water
  • Mild dish soap
  • Baking soda or toothpaste (weird, right? Stay with me!)
  • A cotton ball or pad


4. The Soapy Way: Just a Bath, not a Splash!

A. Prepping the Shades

Pour a few drops of mild dish soap into a bowl of warm water. Now, think of it like a spa for your sunnies. Gently clean them to remove any oils or dirt.

B. Rinse & Wipe

Rinse off the soap under running water, and wipe them down with the soft cloth. Remember: Always in a circular motion, like you're caressing a magic crystal ball.


5. Choosing the Right Scratch Remover: The Grand Duel

A. Baking Soda Method

Ever thought your kitchen supplies would come to the rescue? Here's how:

  • Mix a little baking soda with water to create a paste.
  • Gently rub the paste over the scratch.
  • Rinse, wipe, and inspect.


B. Toothpaste Technique

A tooth for a tooth? Nah! A toothpaste for a scratch!

  • Ensure you're using non-gel, non-abrasive, and non-whitening toothpaste.
  • Dab a bit onto the scratch.
  • Rub gently with a cotton ball or pad.
  • Rinse, wipe, and voilà!

Which one to choose? Well, think of it like choosing between ice cream flavors. Both are fabulous; it just depends on what's in your cabinet.


6. For Those Stubborn Scratches: Professional Help

Remember, it's not surrendering; it's just calling for backup! If the scratch refuses to go away, perhaps it's time to let professionals handle it. Chanel sunglasses are a masterpiece, and sometimes, a little expert touch is all they need.


7. Prevention is Better than Cure: Protect Your Sunnies!

Because once bitten, twice shy, right? Here are some quick tips:

  • Cases are Cool: Your Chanel sunglasses most likely came with a stylish case. Use it!
  • Cleaning Rituals: Clean them with the right cloth and avoid rough materials.
  • Safe Zone: Always place them lenses facing upward.


8. Final Thoughts: Embrace the Battle Scars

Every scratch tells a story. While we'd all love our sunglasses to be pristine, sometimes life happens. And if a scratch remains, isn't it just a testament to all the adventures you’ve had?

Remember, Chanel sunglasses aren't just a fashion statement; they're a lifestyle. So wear them with pride, scratches and all!
