Fix scratch, freezing, and skipping CDs and DVDs with toothpaste. Put a few drops on the disc, enough to cover but not be really goopy. Use your fingers to buff the disc until the toothpaste is partly dry and feels tacky. Put pressure on the rubbing so it is rubbed in really well. Rinse well with warm water (toothpaste comes off easily). Pat dry with a soft cloth.
One pinner writes:...it WORKS! It's like a little miracle and we've already repaired a bunch of movies that have been loved (practically to death) by the kids and watched over and over. Seriously - don't throw away another DVD until you've tried this...I wish I knew about this simple fix a long time ago!
Magic Eraser (any brand) for resurfacing DVDs! Hear me, people. This fixes scratched/ skipping CDs and DVDs. Using a damp magic eraser, work from middle to edge, then following the curve of the DVD. (You're scuffing down the surface to the level of the scratch.) Reclaimed my fave workout vid from the rubbish bin. Yay. Now I have *no* excuse not to sweat.
Cleaning scratched dvds/cds/games with kid's crest toothpaste. Buffs the scratches out so your dvd won't skip anymore. I have tried several things on pinterest that haven't worked but I followed these instructions and my dvd works great!
Peanut buttery fix for scratched DVDs. I just tried this on a DVD that was long gone, so I wasn't worried about it. Rubbed some peanutbutter on Doc McStuffins, buffed it all off with tissue and boom, played like a charm!
