Fix A Dirty, Scratched Disc With A Little Forehead Grease

If you have a CD or DVD that won’t play because it’s covered in dust and scratches, a little forehead grease will get it working again. Now that’s using your head.

In this video, Youtuber Viva Frei shows how you can fix a scratched DVD, CD or other disc with your own natural skin oils. Start by taking a tissue, rolling it up and tearing it in half so you can hold both torn ends side by side in one hand like it’s a brush. Now rub the dirty, scratched up surface of the disc on your greasy forehead, and use the makeshift tissue brush to spread the grease around the disc to clean it. The oils from your skin will help clean the surface of dirt and temporarily fill the the scratches on the disc’s surface. You can do the same thing with other oils, some Vaseline, and peanut butter, but this trick works well enough if you don’t have anything else around.
