    The best way of removing marks from dvds?

    After some advice.

    Decided to watch my beloved Sex, chips and rock n roll dvd last night and must have been half asleep. Have a tv with built in dvd player and tried to put it in without taking the dvd already in it out. The dvd now has quite large marks(not scratches) on it where the spinning dvd rubbed on it. The dvd is quite rare and hard to get hold of unless you want to pay a fortune on ebay so would like to save it.
    Does anyone know the best way or best device to get to get rid of the marks or at least make it so i can watch episode 5 which now jumps through in a space of 20 mins instead of the 50 mins it should be.
    thanks

    Someone will bound to say that you should not do this, it works for me every time without any problem ..... here goes ......
    Put a small amount of washing up liquid on the disc, use your fingers to rub it around while holding it under cold running water. Pat (not rub) dry with a paper towel.
    It is a myth that suggests that water will ruin a cd or dvd.

    Just found this advice: labnol.blogspot.com/200…tml

    Usually use baby / Face wipes, normally does the trick!

    Just to second i use the washing up liquid as well. Always works for me.

    Yes you can, it covers scratches too, just don't use the stuff with soda in it.

    Polish with vinegar
