Cleaning CDs

When a CD doesn’t play correctly, try washing it gently with warm water and a squirt of liquid dish soap, and then drying it with a clean lint-free towel. This will remove finger prints, but not scratches. If this doesn’t solve the problem, try a mild abrasive such as baking soda toothpaste or furniture polish. More tips on removing CD scratches can be found at Marshall County School System, FREE CD Scratch Removal System and TechTV Call for Help.
