Sometimes it is not practical to make all the repairs needed to a property, such as replacing a scratched door. Scratches can be unsightly, and very noticeable when they are lighter than the original finish. To minimize their appearance, furniture touch up products are reasonably priced, and available in common colors. A filler may also be needed for deep scratches, but for light ones simply apply the product like a marker, starting with the lightest shades and blending to darken if needed. The scratch will still exist, but will be less noticeable.
