Clean the paint chip with soap and water and then dry it with a soft cotton cloth. Rub a dab of automotive polishing compound over the paint chip to gently soften any ragged edges.

How do you keep paint from chipping on cabinets?
Prevent Painted Cabinets From Chipping Look for products labeled “peel bonding primer” or “peel stop.” As long as the current coat of paint isn’t chipping or peeling, you can apply these primers directly over top of the existing paint after a thorough cleaning.
Can I just paint over chipped paint?
Old paint can chip, flake or peel, leaving behind cracks and small holes. This can’t just be painted over without causing future problems. You’ll need a paint scraper, wire brush, sandpaper and a primer. If you try to paint over peeling paint, you will not have a smooth, professional finish.
Can I paint over old paint on wood?
Never attempt to paint an existing wood surface without preparing its surface. Applying a direct coat of paint over the old coating will not work and eventually will tend to peel, especially if it has a glossy finish. Sand gently only to create a grip on the surface to be painted. Use a 280 grit to sand the surface.
Why does paint peel off like rubber?

How do you paint laminate cabinets that are peeling?
After sanding and wiping everything with a tack cloth, I spray primed the cabinet parts with my favorite Kilz Primer (HERE). I usually always use the spray primer, or a combination of spraying and rolling some parts. When the primer is done, I sand everything with very fine sandpaper to smooth out the grainy texture.
