About Scratch-Dini

Scratch-dini is a formula which is said to quickly buff out scratches from the surfaces of a variety of vehicles. It comes in 4-ounce tubes and is claimed to work on any color finish. The commercial for Scracth-dini claims that it contains something called Carbopal EZ-3 and millions of micro-particles, but it is never explained exactly what this substance is or how it works to remove scratches. In the commercial, it is also claimed that a single 4-ounce tube of Scratch-dini contains enough formula to fix hundreds of scratches.

The official website is, which was registered on March 15, 2013. Their customer service phone number is 1-866-684-5574.

How Much Does Scratch-dini Cost?

A 4-ounce tube of Scratch-dini Scratch Remover costs $10 plus $7.95 processing and handling for a total of $17.95. They also include Scratch-dini Headlight Restorer. They will double the order for another $7.95, for a grand total of $25.90.

There is no way to simply order one bottle of Scratch-dini from the website, meaning their “special offer” is the only option available and you will be charged $25.90.

If you attempt to navigate away from, you’ll be given an option to purchase the product for $5 off your order. On this screen, you’ll also be given the opportunity to select a quantity.

Scratch-dini is now widely available in stores, as we spotted it in an “As Seen on TV” store locally (see graphic below).

Please see our article entitled The “Get a Second One Free” Marketing Ploy regarding this common tactic used by As Seen on TV advertisers.

Our Scratch-dini Review

Car scratch removal products have been on the market for years, with products available from many of the big players such as 3M, Dupont, and Turtle. Scratch-dini has been advertising on television since early 2013, and promises to buff out scratches in seconds.

In our tests of Scrach-dini, we saw no visible improvement in scratches whatsoever, even hairline scratches. We attempted a variety of techniques and scratch depths, and could not achieve an acceptable result for any use of the product. We give Scratc-dini 1 out of 5 stars.

Bottom Line

We found Scratch-dini Scratch Remover to be ineffective even for hairline scratches. There are less expensive scratch removal options you can purchase locally. A visit to your local auto parts and accessories store may yield many more options. If you are determined to try it, pick it up locally to avoid shipping charges and delays.

    Not that the product does not work, after sending product back no refund after a month, that leads me to believe as a buyer beware on trust issue’s with this company. Per customer service rep. Yaritza no refund, your package must of got lost in the mail. I’ll buy that for dollar so to speak.

  • Scarlett McMahon

    I only wish that I had been smart enough to read the reviews before ordering Scratch Dini. It does not come close to hiding even the smallest scratches. I’d love to send it back and get my money back but I don’t know if that’s possible. There is no way to contact anyone on the website. I guess this should have been a hint as to how well the product works. I am surprised that these people have not been sued for false advertising.

  • Twan

    I’m tired of the scams they get away with on TV. Scratch Dini can’t even get out hairline scratches. You don’t get to see your final bill until they have your credit card number. A $25 order turns into a $77 order. This has got to stop. I’ve complained to many agencies with no avail. False advertising is a crime. The promoters of Scratch Dini should be fined big time. Thieves, outright stealing our money.

  • CreedeMike

    Thanks for all the reviews, I just saw it advertised and could not believe the advertisement when they showed a deep scratch into the primer and they used the product on it and showed the scratch gone, that is very false advertising!!!!!

  • Howard

    I have spent my career suing companies in consumer class actions and I can tell you this sort of scam is nothing compated to what the banks, credit card companies, cell phone companies, insurance companies get away with everyday stealing billions of consumer dollars.

  • Ken

    Same Song, 15 million verse’s. Seen add on RFDTV, called knew something was wrong when they wanted Credit Card first but gave it anyway. I filed a dispute with my Bank but probably won’t do any good. $48.80 was my tuition. I did send an email to RFD but haven’t heard anything.

  • Michelle

    I am writing to confirm that I tried ordering by phone from their company. The options are said so quickly one does not know if they are being charged $25.90 or some other amount. At the end the automated does not say how much is charged to your card. I called and cancelled my order and made sure to get operator’s name and ID number. I will have to watch my card now to be sure it isn’t charged.

  • Aaron

    Thank you very much for these reviews. I should have known better for even considering this product. Thank God I’ve learned enough to at least do some research before spending the money. Thanks to all for saving me a headache and a lot of cash. Thanks to this website and its review!

    • waffles

      Glad we could help! Thanks for stopping by!

  • VoxPop

    Classic example of rip-off capitalism.
    If they can get away with it, they will.
    Government consumer protection: what a joke.

  • Rick Willard

    TurtleWax makes a product for fine scratch removal. Does a great job on my glasses. Actually, toothpaste is another fine polishing agent.

  • Richie C.

    These “scratches” we see on the vehicles in these commercials are made with grease pencils and can be wiped off with a paper towel. These companies are knowingly deceiving the public.

  • Rob

    Worthless waste of money. A mild polishing cream that DOES NOT remove scratches. Those TV commercials are a fake.

  • Nick

    Ha! I run a body shop and one day I saw that a customer had some of this in the console of their car. I asked him if it worked or just polished the scratch and received the exact answer that I was expecting. All you have to do is use common sense. If you have a scratch on your car that has gouged the paint, the only way that you are going to replace the paint that is now missing (the “scratch”) would be to fill it with new paint (by spraying or touching up with a brush), or using some kind of acid or heat source to “melt” the surrounding paint. There aren’t any publicly, or even commercially sold products that will do the latter, at least not that I’ve ever heard of. Now, I did see a couple of instances on the commercial that this product may actually work to fix. One was paint transfer from rubbing against another object, meaning that paint (or plastic, rubber, etc.) from the other object that you rubbed your car against is on the surface of the clear-coat. This can usually be simply rubbed off with one swipe of a soft towel and a little bit of lacquer thinner. Seriously, it’s actually easier to do than what they show with the demonstrations on this commercial and, no, it will not damage the paint on your car. If that doesn’t work, then a little rubbing compound or clay magic will get a lot of things off of the SURFACE of the paint. Fine scratches that you can’t hang a fingernail in can be sanded out with very fine grit sandpaper and the dull spot left behind from sanding can be “polished” out with a buffer and a little rubbing compound. There is no product out there that can magically make paint appear out if thin air inside of a scratch – an area that is missing paint. Maybe David Copperfield should start making infomercials on how he can make paint reappear out of nowhere. He might be arable to make a few extra bucks off of some gullible people.

    Scratchdini did a good job scratching up my car.

  • denise morgan

    It is a scam. They do it all the time. We just got taken also. I do not know how they keep getting away with it.

  • John

    I feel the pain of everybody. Several years ago, I ordered a radio-advertised product, and after the hard sell, I was somehow charged much more for the one item I wanted. They removed some of the charges, but not all.
    Moral of this story, wait until whatever item is on amazon and read reviews, or in Bed, Bath, and Beyond, where you can return it to the store.
    This method has saved me a lot of heartache.
    Thank you.

  • linger

    Thank you so much for your comments and for Were it not for you I would have ordered Scratchdini as the scratches seem to magically disappear on the commercials. Based on your comments and the comments from other sites, no only am I not ordering this product but i am now going to contact consumer fraud agency and the better business bureau. If we don’t take care of each other this way, who will. Shame on all of those who want to steal our money…thats what it is, STEALING. Be well everyone! RAL

  • Elmer

    Worthless, don’t waste your money. It’s not even works!

  • BA

    My mom purchased Scratch Dini last week and I tried to remove from her car yesterday and it literally did nothing to remove the scratch whatsoever. I am not sure how much she paid, but she said that she is going to return it immediately.

  • Mia mimosa

    Worthless paste wax. Doesn’t come close to going what it claims. Don’t throw away you money on this junk.

  • Matt Evangelista

    I bought a scratch remover by a company called Kit and it actually worked. I had a scratch from a dog on my car when it jumped on my car and I thought I had to take it to a shop to get it out but this stuff I bought at drug mart in Cleveland got it out for maybe 3 dollars. Another good product is color magic, I got it at autozone for 9 dollars and using both made the scratch almost totally disappear but in certain sunlight I can still see it but just a little.

  • Carlos Rodriguez

    I just placed an order and the process is very confusing. I only wanted to purchased the special as it says above for a total of $25.90 but I got a bill for $77.77. Nobody is attending over the weekend and I hope to correct the order or cancel.
