Quickly Fill in Scratches on Wood with a Crayon or Candle

fill in scratches on wood

Are there deep scratches in your wood that no amount of buffing or wax spray will cover? Don’t despair! All you need is an unscented candle or a box of crayons to effectively fill in scratches on wood. Start by roughly rubbing or sanding the wood to remove any pieces that may be jutting out or uneven. Then, use the crayon or candle that most closely matches the wood’s color and simply rub it back and forth against the wood (no melting required) until you completely fill in the scratches on the wood. After that, wipe the surface and lightly buff it with a clean cloth to remove any excess wax.
