for deep scratches, u need to paint it, then wet sand it to smooth it out.
since its not a deep scratch, u don't need to paint it. so the logical thing is to get the super fine wet sanding paper and lightly sand it ?
don't take my word, i'm not too sure. sorry bro.
oh sorry, u need polish umm... lightly wet sand it with 2000+ grit then polish..
or is it polish only and no sand ? lol.... -.-;;
Cut refers to a polish that has small amounts of abrasive in it that literally cuts a small layer of you paint away. I would not use this first unless the paint is really bad or you know how to use an orbital buffer.
There are several things you could do. For this i would reccomend using a meguiars polishing compound (sorry, i just like meguiars) followed by their deep crystal polish and tech wax.
From now on only use a microfiber cloth to do anything with your car and i can't stress enough to all of you that the easiest way to avoid swirl marks is to NOT SWIRL. Always travel in straight lines with the body of the car when you wash, wax, polish or dry. That way if you do leave scratches they will be less noticable and easier to fill in.
For those light car washing scratches I use Mothers Scratch fix polish. The stuff is amazing and yes you will see a BIG difference and it's easy, just like waxing your car but with a little more elbow grease..
