Apparently, you can rub some nuts on the scratch, and it will come right off.

OMG, what? That can't be right, but alas, it is. This lady wanted to find out for herself, so she tried three different nuts to test this theory.

First, she tried a walnut, and yes, what do you know, it took the scratch right off.

Then she tried a pecan, and the same thing happened. Oh my goodness, that's pretty incredible. Am I right? I have to admit this is fun.

Lastly, she tried to repeat the same thing with a pistachio.

Sadly it didn't work out so much. Therefore, she went back to the walnut. And she was able to get rid of the whole thing once and for all. Wow! Isn't that amazing?

Think about it, it does make perfect sense.

After all, nuts have oils in them, and that's what makes the scratch disappear. But it works best on shallow scratches and not those that are deep inside the wood, so keep that in mind.

Some of them found out about it from their parents or even grandparents. Isn't that so neat? It's pretty awesome when you learn useful stuff like this from your family or, in this case, TikTok, hee, hee.

Other people suggested that you can simply get walnut oil to do the same job.

Oh, nice. That does sound like a great idea indeed. After all, I would rather eat my walnuts than use them on my hardwood floors, lol.

Currently, I don't have hardwood floors, but I do have a wooden kitchen table. I wonder if it would work as well on it too? What do you think?
