    I have just used a cape cod polishing cloth on mine and it looks like it just came out of the box.

    Here's a pic.

    I got these as a pack of 2 on eBay for £4.

    Just to reiterate, they are amazing.

    That's a point I'm not aware anyone has talked about yet.

    Metal polishing compounds, or polishing cloths that are impregnated with a polishing compound.

    If they are abrasive enough to, microscopically remove metal.
    Which is what you need to do, to remove a scratch in metal.

    Then, they must have some fine. VERY fine. VERY hard compounds in there to do the work.

    Would Sapphire stand up 100% to such fine abrasive compounds being rubbed against the side of the screen?

    It would be quite hard, and take great care to not get any abrasive polishing cream near the screen.

    Oh I should have probably mentioned that. If you are going to use this then do not get the liquid from the cloth on the screen of the device. I got a smidgen on the screen but it hasn't harmed the display at all but I wouldn't recommend rubbing this on the screen also. Make sure you only apply this to the SS itself and keep well away from the screen.

    That being said, it is only a soft polishing cloth.

    If you use it on the screen you'll remove the oleophobic coating.
