The March 1987 issue of "Consumer Reports" tried several different
products for cleaning CDs, and came to the conclusion that Rally car wax
did the job as well and more cheaply than anything else. I've used it many
times and I fully agree. I've also used Disc Doctor if Rally car wax
doesn't work, but usually without much success. If the car wax didn't fix
the CD, then Disc Doctor usually won't either. I wipe the car wax on from
the center out, let it dry, and wipe it off lightly, from the center out.
It takes off fingerprints and dirt, and fills in small scratches very nicely.
