Am I an Idiot?

I've just cleaned my new car and used a soft dish scourer to clean my dirty 19 inch alloys and upon rinsing and drying I've noticed that I have put tiny scratches all over each alloy!!!!

What are my options to get rid of them?

I feel like an idiot!

Reminds me of when I was cleaning my vw golf gti a few years back - I didn't notice that a staple was still attached to the chamois(shammy) leather (which was new). I noticed after a few mins and sorted it out quickly.

Always had a couple of hairline scratches on the roof paintwork if you see it from a certain angle in the light :(

hmmm. tcut may help but get the finest you can. Alloys have a clear laquer on them, it is that you have scratched. if you are lucky the might polish out. if not live with. or have them blasted and recoated.

drive down a dusty lane, you wont see them until you next clean

Since having the car, I've been so careful having to have 100% concentration on the road just to avoid the pot holes that are everywhere...so far, no damage to edge of alloys, just my own fault of being heavy handed...will try the T-Cut thansk for all your replys...

I would try a small area first, I think T Cut may be too abrasive.

If the wheels aren't kurbed then you can simply get them re -lacquered by a wheel refurb place for about £20.
