That's how easy it is to remove scratches

Everyone knows that: they want to hear their favorite CD or watch a DVD movie, but nothing works - the disc is scratched. We'll show you how to remove the scratches.

To repair the CD or DVD, you need nothing more than toothpaste and a tissue.

Pick up the damaged disk and distribute about as much toothpaste on the bottom as you would on your toothbrush. Rub the toothpaste with the tissue in a circle so that the entire surface is covered.

Let the toothpaste work for 10 minutes. Then rinse the disc under lukewarm water to completely remove the toothpaste. Then simply dry the CD or DVD with a clean tea towel.

The trick: In the toothpaste are fine particles that seal the scratches. Visually, you can not observe this effect with the naked eye, but now the player can read the disk again much better.
