Fix Scratched CDs and DVDs

Here is my reality...my son is obsessed with DVDs and CDs. Of course, he only likes the ones with pictures on them, like Finding Nemo, The Wiggles, and Shrek.

The problem is, his little fingers have destroyed many of these DVDs because of all the lovely scratches.

Thanks to Live with Regis and Kelly, I have discovered a great way to save these DVDs and CDs.

There is no need to toss it away and buy a replacement one. Instead, look in your medicine cabinet for toothpaste and an old toothbrush. Cover the whole scratched side with creamy toothpaste (gel toothpastes won't work) and buff away the scratches with a toothbrush. Brush from the center out with an old toothbrush. Wash thoroughly with soapy water and gently towel dry. Repeat until the skips are gone.

Not only will this help save you money, but it will also help save the planet. How can you beat that?

I really hope this works because I have way too many CDs that are scratched!

Great tip! I can't wait until the boyz realize that Mommy can magically "fix" their Monsters Inc. and Toy Story 2 DVDs that they've abandoned b/c they're too scratched!
