Simply so, how do you get deep scratches out of metal?
To repair minor scratches on stainless steel, buff them out using a microfiber cloth and a non-abrasive cleaner like rubbing compound or toothpaste. For deeper scratches, wet a piece of coarse-grit sandpaper and rub it over the scratch, going in the direction of the grain.
Likewise, does toothpaste remove scratches from stainless steel? Ordinary whitening toothpaste is mildly abrasive and in your next attempt at removing the scratch, you'll take advantage of that microscopic grit to go a little deeper on the stainless steel. Apply a coat of toothpaste to a soft-bristle toothbrush.

Can you get scratches out of stainless steel?
Stainless steel is a great look until you scratch it. Then it looks awful. But you can “sand” out the scratches with sandpaper (400 to 600 grit) and a sanding block, an abrasive pad, or with a rubbing compound. Or buy a stainless steel repair kit and get everything you need.
