When I get a rental DVD that's dirty, I use a little liquid hand soap (with no moisturizer) and a lot of running water to gently clean the surface. It works well, and I'm sure hand dishwashing detergent would work even better.

You need to have a very clean towel ready for the DVD. I don't use paper towels, and I suspect that low-grade ones might scratch.

I have done so with no penalty.

I don't know whether it's recommended.

When I subscribed to netflix, they recommended using windex.

The computer repair guy also recommended using windex and then wiping gently with a lint free towel.

Regular dirt can be cleaned with mild soap and water. For scratches, I've always heard you can use toothpaste (not the gel forms) to polish them. Here's some info on that, and a few other tips:

You can even use a banana, banana peel and some glass cleaner to make scratches dissapear - cool video here:
