Magic Eraser (any brand) for resurfacing DVDs! Hear me, people. This fixes scratched/ skipping CDs and DVDs. Using a damp magic eraser, work from middle to edge, then following the curve of the DVD. (You're scuffing down the surface to the level of the scratch.) Reclaimed my fave workout vid from the rubbish bin. Yay. Now I have *no* excuse not to sweat.
Fix scratch, freezing, and skipping CDs and DVDs with toothpaste. Put a few drops on the disc, enough to cover but not be really goopy. Use your fingers to buff the disc until the toothpaste is partly dry and feels tacky. Put pressure on the rubbing so it is rubbed in really well. Rinse well with warm water (toothpaste comes off easily). Pat dry with a soft cloth.
