    aww.... Well ~ don't let children play with them anymore! lol! I have had my iPad almost two years and not one scratch. It really is pretty difficult to scratch gorilla glass. What do you suppose it was scratched with ~ because our fingers just can't do it.

    Have you tried cleaning the glass and you are sure they are scratches?

    Tooth paste is used a lot to clean glass. How to Use Toothpaste to Remove Scratches | eHow.com. I have not tried it on iPad glass however I did fix a Sony mobile some years back plus repaired scratched DVD's it is recommended to use plain white tooth paste. One only has to search the net with google " remove scratches toothpaste glass iPad " and you will find heaps of links for iPhones and iPads
    Commercial glass cleaners are available however I have no idea what is available in USA It is like anything else out there read up several posts and make your own decision.

    Best of luck

    You are not gonna use the whole tube, babe. Just a little dab on the scratch. Then wipe it off.

    iPad glass has a coating that can be harmed by abrasives. There are abrasives in toothpaste and many household cleaners, so use at your own risk. If my iPad were scratched, I'd live with it rather than risk more damage. YMMV.

    agree,it can't hurt and just may work,put on a screen protector after that,it will at least hide any remaining scratches so you don't have to look at them.
