    Cheapest place to get a disc cleaned?

    Afternoon everyone,

    Can anyone recommend any stores which clean discs well for a reasonable price?

    I use to go to my local Asda and they did it for £1 per disc however they've stopped this service a while ago.

    Thanks in advance.

    Im sure GAME can do it but its more than £1, I personally just clean myself carefully with t-cut to get the scratches out

    yeah I am looking for this service too cex and game charge like £3 per disc ridiculous Imo. I heard that so library's do it for free but have never seen it myself

    Yeah, I thought they were £3 at GAME which seems pricey. I'll give them a call to check.

    I would if they worked but they are nothing like the cleaners which shops own. You may as well just wipe the disk with a lens cloth, it does the same as those kits. The machines on the other hand actually do resurface the disks but obviously the machines are very expensive to buy in the first place.

    I know my local cash converters do disc cleaning. I think it's £1 a disc but not 100% sure

    grainger games do cleaning too..


    and you should look after your discs that way they wont need cleaning

    I do look after my discs, you're jumping to the most obvious conclusion which may not be the case

    ​Why you glad about that? Does talking about 3.5 inches make you rise to the occasion? I think you went off track with it so I've cleared it up that I was talking about the difference between a floppy disk and a disc. End of story really.
