we bought a dvd scratch repair kit, you could try toothpaste or peanut butter as a temporary fix

We were told by an employee at Game Stop to use rubbing compound to get rid of scratches on cd's and dvd's.

I bought a repair kit before but it may work on very very light scratches. I mean very light. 

I've tried different things but nothing seems to really do the trick and I must have 20 scratched up because my now 4 year old son kept climbing up and pulling them out of the DVD player. Then he'd play with it on the floor. By the time I realized it, they were all damaged.

Someone has said mayonaise before but that didn't work.

I'm going to take the above posters advice and try rubbing compound to see if that's any good.

I swear I'm gonna go with Blueray sooner or later. They say those are harder to scratch up.

It may sound crazy but I use toothpaste and it works for me, my grandson is very hard on dvd's, I rub in the toothpaste and hold it under the faucet rinse it off and dry well with a soft cloth. I heard this would work but I didn't believe it so I tried it with an old movie first and it worked. rinse it in cold water.
