my wiper blade scratched my windshield

guess I had some debris or a twig or something under my driver's side wiper blade and it left a streaked arc across my widshield. Anything that will take it off the glass?

You might be able to buff it out. I think I remember seeing it done on one of those how-to car repair programs on TV.

You can Google "buff out window scratches" to get some idea whether this might work for your particular scratch.

Toothpaste is very good for removing scratches on glass. This will remove light scratches. If the scratches are deep you will need to replace the windscreen on insurance.
