Default cleaning scratched discs

what do you guys use to clean scratched discs?

ive heard/read different things that people have used like tooth paste, acetone, paint thinner, bleach, vaseline, loogies, and just a bunch of other random ****.

i tried tooth paste a couple times, and it worked once but i think it was just coincidence because it didnt work any other time.

Default Re: cleaning scratched discs

It all depends on how deep the scratch is. Tooth Paste works more for surface scratches. but you need tooth paste that has a bit of abrasiveness to it. For those disks that have really deep scratches there isnt much that can be done. As they pretty much destroy the data.
