So clearly, mayonnaise is not just for sandwiches it’s also for cleaning as well. Try this trick and be amazed. The good thing is that you don’t need expensive products to clean those scratches.



  • Mayonnaise
  • Rag


You just have to make sure to identify the spots where the scratches can be found. Then you take a dollop of mayonnaise and rub it on the spots. You let it sit for 5 minutes then wipe it off with a rag. You can also clean the countertop of the oil left by the mayonnaise if you’re iffy about the residue or the smell. What’s important is that the scratches will definitely disappear.
