What do you guys use to clean DVD's, just water or some kind of DIY mix? Thanks.
I use water, wet paper towel, then dry paper towel.
Depends on why I'm cleaning it -- grape jelly is a tad harder to get off than fingerprints! Anyway, mostly just a little water and a little dish soap (just touch the top of the bottle to pick up a very small amount). Rinse and papertowel.
there are still people using DVDs?
A dirty DVD is usually an excuse to go out and buy the collector's edition of that film.
Actually, I use my breath and I have this nice suede chair I polish 'em on.
Officially, use a very soft cloth and distilled water and perhaps a mild detergent. Wipe in strokes that are at right angles to the disc.
Another vote for soap and water and a clean cloth to dry.
Places like Netflix have recommended Windex. There are some concerned about ammonia affecting the disc, but there are non-ammonia versions of Windex.
There are? At any rate, avoid any amonia-based glass cleaners. Distilled water and mild detergent are perfect.
From the Windex site:
They may have discontinued the product, since I don't see it on the site, but the Windex I bought for my car says ammonia-free. That's what I've been using for discs with bad fingerprints. Otherwise I just use water and a supersoft cotton cloth to pat dry.
I've been using my Disk Doctor with distilled water. Seems to work fine on most. It's funny NetFlix mentions cleaning DVD's. Every disk I've rented from them has been filthy and scratched...some to the point where they won't even play.
