We all must have felt the ‘being shattered’ feeling of watching our phone crashing to the walkway – and then probably collapsing to an outburst of fear and shock when charged high sums of money just to repair the Screen.

Most of us have bumped into or will come across the catastrophe of a broken smartphone screen.

Simon Rockman, a mobile expert and founder of Fuss Free Phones, told The Sun Online that one can easily purchase everything we need online.

The difference between going to a shop and buying parts from eBay is huge: you can save yourself from forking out up to £200 for a repair.  You might need to buy special tools but a few pounds buys a full set of the things you’ll need and some sellers throw in replacement screens too, ” he said.

If you want to do a little DIY or want to try it, open eBay and search for a  “repair kit” followed by the name of your phone.

Here are a  few DIY countermeasures you need to try to repair the broken screen. Are you courageous (or foolish) enough to try them out?

  • Toothpaste:

Though the use of toothpaste gives you good breath, it also covers the scratches on your phone. This approach can mend a small scratch, or at least conceal it. Apply a tiny bit of toothpaste on a cotton bud and rub it on the scratch, ensuring that it doesn’t find its route into headphone sockets, buttons or other vulnerable parts of your device. It will make your phone minty fresh.

  • Vegetable Oil:

Again, this will tuck away the problem but won’t completely fix it. Just spread a dab of oil on to the scratch to hide it. But keep your eyes open because the oil will rub off and will need to be reapplied.

  • Plastic Bag:

Ensure and assure that your plastic bags are more clear than these ones. If your phone screen breaks, you can cease it from getting more worse by purchasing a screen protector. Just encase a thin, transparent plastic bag around the mobile and it should block the issue for a while.

  • Sandpaper:

Go ahead deliberately when sanding down your screen. This is a process that is not for the anxious, coward and apprehensive. If a small scratch appears on your phone, you can try to sand it down with paper or even use a grinding machine. But don’t sand too energetically because you might not have a screen left.

  • Baking Soda:

A very known remedy flowing online recommends a paste made from two parts baking soda to one part water can fix screens. Just make a thick paste and then use a cloth to rub it in. This should resolve the problem for a while.
