Repairing light scratches can cost up to £100, but following this advice means forking out less than £1.

TikTok user @mottoloka uploaded a video revealing how to remove light marks on your car using just toothpaste.

The footage opens with the TikToker pointing to some scuffs on the front wing of his car.

He then puts three lines of toothpaste onto a cloth before we see the minty goo smeared all  over the scratches.

The toothpaste is then carefully wiped off using a soft microfibre cloth, and when finished you can see a shiny panel underneath.

Users were quick to comment below – praising the useful hack.

One said: “omg! amazing it really works. thanks for your info.”

Another commented: “Wow it works great thank you I was worried about my car.”

While another grateful viewer said: “Me about to do this to my rental before I return it thanks.”

Anyone trying out the handy hack should follow the following steps:

Wash and dry the affected area to ensure you don’t end up rubbing any debris or dirt into the scratch.

Use warm soapy water (a proper car shampoo is best) and then rinse down before drying with a clean, dry cloth.

Next, take a dampened microfibre cloth and squeeze on roughly a 2p-sized amount of toothpaste.

Rub the toothpaste into the scratch in a circular motion – 

applying enough pressure to ensure the paste is well-distributed across the affected area.

Once you’ve finished rubbing the marks, rinse the area thoroughly with soapy water to make sure you remove any excess toothpaste.

Finally, dry it with a good quality microfibre cloth.

With some careful polishing, the panel looks to be in tip-top condition
