    I am curious as to what methods everyone uses to clean their DVDs or to repair them when possible. Just thought it would be interesting to hear different ways to maintain a clean and functional collection.[​IMG]

    First, if it probably just needs a cleaning I use a tissue and window cleaner. If more is required I run it through my Skip Doctor.

    I only repaired one of my DVD's (Video Essentials) which my sons scratched to oblivion about 3 years ago. It worked fine after that.

    Other than that, I use a regular CD cleaner to get rid of the fingerprints that get on there.

    I clean my DVDs by rinsing them under running water and drying them with a clean microfiber cloth. None of my DVDs have ever become damaged, so I have never had to repair any of them, however, I have repaired many CDs over the years, and I use Meguiars Gold Class Swirl Reducer, and then a layer of Gold Class Carnuba Wax...same stuff I use on my car. Works everytime.

    A while ago I bought one of those DVD cleaner kits from Maxwell, it had some cleaning pads, a base for the DVD and cleaning fluid (Isopropyl Alcohol) something like 1.5 oz. of that. Bought it at Wal-Mart for about $9.00

    Works pretty well.

    However what I did was to buy a container of Isopropyl Alcohol from Wal-Mart and put it in a spray bottle and when ever I need to clean the discs I use that. 16oz for about a dollar or so. Cheaper that the DVD Cleaning Kit and I have a very good cleaning solution for my DVD's.

    All I need to do is buy replacement cleaning pads and more Isopropyl Alcohol when ever I need more. Cheaper that the entire cleaning kit.
