    A lot of times instead of it actually being a scratch it is something ON the glass, which can be buffed off with some elbow grease. It is kind of like the scuff-marks you see on a linoleum floor.

    If it is a scratch, try this fix. Get some furniture polish and a clean cotton rag. Spray the polish on the rag and work it into the scratch. Gently rub it in the scratch, and then wipe away any excess. You may need to do this several times but it SHOULD fix the scratch as long as it is not too wide.

    Finally, there is always the option of jeweler's rouge, which can be gotten at a lot of hardware stores. Follow the directions and you should be able to buff out any scratches that you have. Keep in mind, this process will take several hours, and should also be your last resort.

    Cheers,
    Peter
