I use hand or dish soap, just get a good bit on it and rub it in then rinse it off. I had a gash, not a scratch, a gash, in a cd a few years back and the CD still works excellent.

(not boiling, but almost is okish)
as long as its for a short period of time
and you are careful not to get it
between the the plastic and the thin layer of reflective sh!t

Okay..so seriously, you dont just drop the DVD into the water..right? If that were to work, you would have to just dip the DVD into the water, in the places where there are the deep scratches? I could try this on some DVDs that I know are so bad that they will not play..either way, if it doesnt work, I will have only destroyed a bad DVD.

You drop it in water for 10 seconds then take it out with some tongs.

I tried the hot water..I brought the water to a boil, then turned it off I held the DVD in the water for 10 seconds and didnt drop it all the way in, so I did one side at a time, used a soft rag and wiped it in one direction, not around the DVD, but straight from center to edge. I did not put the middle plastic part in the water, just the silver part. So far so good actually. I did this on several DVDs that my daughter said would not play in the player..and we put them in the player after the water dip and they played. I am still skeptical, but we will see..I have several more that are pretty much ruined that I plan to try as well.

I think how this works is that the very top coat of the DVD player melts ever so slightly and fills in the scratches..then when you dry them with the rag, it smooths it over. I did not touch the DVD to the bottom of the pan and I only left each side in there for 10 seconds. I really figured it couldnt hurt because I was ready to throw these away anyway.

How did you hear about this Roll?
