Apple AirPods are lightweight and handy. Even though most people place the AirPods and the charging case in trousers and handbags, they are actually quite prone to scratches and drop damages. Because they are made of hard plastic, the scratches can be quite obvious against AirPods' white shiny surface. To remove the scratches on the AirPods and the charging case, you will need 5 minutes and a few tools that could be easily found in your local stores:
1. 2000 Grit / P2000 sandpaper
2. 3000 Grit/ P3000 sandpaper
3. Alcohol and cotton
Note: Different jobs require different grit size of sandpaper. For heavy sanding, you use coarse sandpaper such as 40- to 60-grit; for smoothing imperfections, choose 80- to 120-grit sandpaper. For finishing surfaces smoothly, use superfine sandpaper with 360-grit and up. As in this case, for fine polishing of hard plastic, we use 2000- to 3000 grit ultrafine sandpapers.
Step 1: Gently sand the scratch marks on your AirPods charging case with P2000 sandpaper. This will slowly remove the scratch marks and leave a matte surface.
Step 2: Use alcohol and cotton to clean the AirPods/charging case. Repeat Step 1 if scratch marks remained.
Step 3: To turn the sanded matte surface to a shiny surface, follow the next step.
Step 4: Wet the surface with cotton and water, use P3000 sandpaper to gently polish the surface.
Step 5: Use alcohol and cotton to clean and polish the AirPods/charging case.
Step 6: Done
