Default Minor Scratches

What do you guys recommend to fix up minor scratches? My retard sister who is claiming it WASNT HER put a mini tower computer in my trunk yesterday and all of a sudden there's a fresh 2" scratch on the top side of my bumper (I know its fresh because the dust on my car is moved in the area). Anyways, I'm pissed. Not even two months old. GRR Any suggestions?

Why not get a Rear Bumper Applique from Toyota (or others) to cover the scratch and prevent more scratches when loading and unloading the back.

Default Look for a "Prius rear bumper protector" on eBay

We had an out of town visitor who insisted on loading/unloading his own luggage on the trip to the airport.

Needless to say he was not as careful as I would have been and a 1/4" black nick appeared on the bumper top surface, as a result.

I found a "Prius bumper protector" on eBay. It is black plastic and installs with double-sided tape and took care of that nick and any future mishaps.

If an auto supply store is closer you might try a small tube of "scratch remover" It's a combination of a mild rubbing compound and polish that eliminates most scratch marks.
