Surface scratches and nicks on your vehicle’s paint are sadly unavoidable, no matter how careful you are in today’s world. All it takes is a second of forgetfulness when removing an item you’ve propped on the roof, a slip of the key, or a brush with a diamond ring finger to leave a scratch mark that’s there to stay. Mothers California Gold™ Scratch Remover you treat minor scratches quickly and easily without the hassle and complexity of buffing paint. Scratch Remover paste rubs into minor scratches to fill and conceal them from view. A good rule of thumb is if the scratch is deep enough to catch a fingernail in, Scratch Remover will only partially conceal it. Because this is a polish that does not physically remove the scratches, Scratch Remover is not a permanent fix but will last given proper sealing with wax after application.

Since the company’s earliest days, Mothers has employed experts in the field of automotive paintwork to develop products that perform at the top of their fields. If you’re in need of sophisticated products that clean glass, leather, carpet, vinyl and rubber, take a look at the wide range of Mothers professional-grade cleaners we offer. When it’s time to remove scratches, tar, or oxidation from paint and chrome, you’ll find a wide range of Mothers products tailored to each application to give you strong results. And, of course, you won’t be disappointed with our selection of Mothers waxes and polishes designed to give every part of your vehicle a professional concours-winning look. When you want to bring home the Best In Show trophy or simply show your vehicle off on cruise nights, Mothers products will help your vehicle stand out from the crowd.

Founded in 1971 in the diverse and creative car culture of southern California, Mothers® Polishes-Waxes-Cleaners began with a strong appreciation that customers who see their automobiles as works of art will always appreciate high quality products to clean, protect, and beautify their investments. The company first made refinements to carnauba wax to take it from a difficult-to-use, fussy hard paste to a softer blend with advanced liquid polishes – thus creating the ultimate natural wax product. As automotive paints advanced, Mothers met every challenge with cleaners, polishers and waxes designed to be most effective. A commitment to quality control and customer satisfaction won them a loyal owner base, and Mothers expanded their focus into a full line of premium quality waxes, cleaners, and polishes, for all automotive applications. Today, if you need to create a concours-winning look on chrome, bare metal, glass, rubber, leather, or paint, Mothers® is the only name you need to know.

Mothers® - California Gold™ 8 oz. Scratch Remover
I have used Mother's Scratch Remover for years on different cars and love the results. Fills in the surface scratch and when you follow up with a polish to seal it, the results are very good.

Synthetic Wax
When I have time, I love to use this wax. It does take more time and effort than synthetic but its worth it. The shine and gloss just feels better. Great protective wax

My Choise
I've used clay bar kits from four different manufacturers. All did the job fine . But Mother's California Gold Clay Bar kit is a GREAT clay bar kit and it's very well priced. As long as Mother's continues to make this kit I will continue to buy it.

Greate Product
Their liquid cleaner wax is good stuff. Its actually my go-to product for hard water etching, not sure what's in it, but it cleans hard water spots amazingly well. Great durability for a cleaner wax too, goes 2-3 months easily.
