  •  I use windex and wipe clean with a very soft lint free cloth like a hanky. Wipe it in the round direction of the spirals. Works every time.

  • I use a diaper wipe to clean the fingerprints and who knows what else. Then, I dry it, usually with my shirt. It's been working for years.

  • The toothpaste works every time. Be sure you use the white kind, not the gel. It removes the scratches and prints like magic. Our cd's and dvd's have been saved numerous times by using this cleaning method.

  • Windex and a tissue. Sometimes if that's not available I steam it up with my breath and wipe it with my shirt lol. If you have a Game Crazy (inside Hollywood Video) where you live they clean CD's, DVD's and video games inside their little machine for $1 each.
