any suggestoins for cleaning dvd's that have been left out and gotten crud on them?someone i know suggested washing them with dawn dish detergent. anyone have experience with that? tia-vik-
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.Chopec
Although this is about removing scratches, I thought this was interesting:http://www.wisebread.com/quickly-removing-scratches-from-cds-and-dvdsThere is a lot more if you do a Google search:http://www.google.com/search?sourceid=navclient&ie=UTF-8&rls=GGIH,GGIH:2006-50,GGIH:en&q=removing+scratches+from+cd

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: http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/77You can even use a banana, banana peel and some glass cleaner to make scratches dissapear - cool video here: http://lifehacker.com/software/macgyver-tip/clean-a-scratched-cd-or-dvd-with-a-banana-289578.phpLaura
