Default Scratched screen

I've unfortunately managed to scratch my m8 screen with keys, the scratches are light, but annoying when the phone is switched off.

Is there anyway to clean these out? I heard somewhere that toothpaste works?

Is your scratches on the screen if so then why dont you send it to htc?htc offers free 1 time screen replacement within first 6 months.
Also you can use small bit of toothpaste.
Don't say thanks hit thanks if I have helped.

Current Device:

S-OFF-Yes
Recovery:TWRP
Kernel:ElementalX

Thanks. I did think of that, but I have an unlocked bootloader with s-off, which I guess voids my warranty?

Try to return each and everything to stock(rom/recovery/kernel)then lock bootloader then act like you dont know that you have S-Off device.In us and uk they wont see if you have s-on or s-off.Also you have to act a bit.

Those scratches are noticeable only when screen is off.you won't see them when you are using the phone, so I don't understand why does it bother people...
Do you look at your phone when it's switched off? I mean more then a second?In my opinion, What you don't see, is not worth worrying about.

You are right I guess. Plus I just realised the HTC advantage programme is not available in the UK. I would have to use a local outlet.

Toothpaste it is then!

Just be aware the screen has a special coating, if you rub it off where the scratch is you may find this leaves a noticeable patch and you may end up having to remove the coating from the whole screen.
