Any tips for restoring scratched DVD's?

DS2 has recently learned to load the DVD player himself. As such all of the kids DVD's are now scratched and skipping. A wipe with a value babywipe cleans the fingermarks really well, but was wondering if there is any miracle cure for the scratches?

you can buy a cd/dvd repairer in maplins for a tenner and upwards - I got one for df at christmas but am told it works. Keep meaning to get around to buying one for ourselves actually smile

Might look into that. The DVD's are all £10 each anyway, and if it stops the constant 'mum, TotsTV isn't working'.... ad infinitum it will be well worth it!

Brasso . I read recently that Brasso has had a new lease of life from techy types polishing their CD's and DVD's. I tried it on one of our Wii cd's recently , it wouldn't work in the Wii machine. I polished it up with Brasso and a soft cloth. Hey presto has worked ever since. It cuts through greasy figerprints and flls in minor scratches. HTH smile
