    Yes, it works, in the fact that it makes those scratches unnoticeable by putting thousands of other tiny scratches in around them.
    Don't use it.

    I have that too on a MacBook that I just bought. Not quite as severe, but probably 5-6 keys worth. Isn't that really a design flaw if they allow that to happen?

    Are those even scratches? From the pictures, it just looks like dirt/oil from the keyboard transferred over to the screen due to both touching. I have those marks with a keyboard cover but they come off with water.

    Yes, it's also a design flaw to have the darn computer heat up as hot as it does, but they let that slide as well didn't they? But I mean, I can assume the OP's laptop is pretty old; if it did that with new models and was more widespread, we would all know about it.

    Obviously. Why would he create this if he could just wipe them off?
