We use regular CD cleaner and a microfiber cleaning cloth. The cheap
disc repair machines (i.e. Disc Doctor) - in our experience - do not
work on DVDs, and break easily (plastic gears).
Our resource library has a disc repair machine, they charge member
libraries $.50 per disc, but their results are poor in my opinion (most
look like they haven't been resurfaced at all). Personally, I sent in a
DVD to RubberDisc.com which was unplayable in multiple players (marred
area, disc came loose in shipping) - when it came back, I couldn't even
tell that there had ever been a scratch on the disc!
Again, only my opinion :-)

What method(s) do you use for cleaning the surface of DVDs? Due to
handling, they have fingerprints, etc. on them and skip the next time
Thanks for your help.
