Do you have a stack of DVD's that are too scratched to play well sitting around collecting dust?
If so, break out a tube of cheap toothpaste, take a clean, soft cloth, and applying a small dab of toothpaste, polish those DVD's up! Then rinse the toothpaste off, dry gently and then run to the DVD player!
We are being able to play DVD's again that we had totally given up on! It's making for some happy children!
I don't know if it would work on music CD's or not, but imagine so!
Wishing I had known this frugal tip a long time ago. Ah well, better late than never.
