While perusing WiseBread.com this week, I came upon an article in which the author shared his tips for fixing up scratches on CDs.
I now know that I should never ever clean CDs or DVDs in circular motions; I should only clean them in straight lines from the center of the discs outward.
The remedies that the author mentioned for fixing scratches included toothpaste, banana, chewing gum, and Brasso (liquid metal polish). Can you guess which option worked most consistently? Take a look at the WiseBread post ” http://tinyurl.com/27umfq ” to see for yourself. (I’ll admit it; I was surprised.)
It took little more than 10 to 15 seconds of browsing through the BillShare site before the little marquee in my head started flashing “If only I’d had this while I and my six housemates shared that tiny house in college…”
