I bought a cd cleaning kit a long time ago and the cleaning solution is
all gone. I wonder what other people use to clean fingerprints off
cds. Do you buy a commercial solution or use something found around
Personally I always wash them with a small amount of liquid soap in luke
warm water, and dry them with a soft cotton cloth. As far as CD's and DVD's
are concerned I fail to see why people should pay money for 'special
that is exactly what we do. i keep a spray bottle in the kitchen that is
about a 10% liquid soap mix. spray on/rinse in warm running water and
dry with a microfiber kitchen cloth. viola!
the special cleaning kits are probably... 10% soap with a 200% markup. ;)
A cleaning solution must not be abrasive, leave a residue, or react with
the polycarbonate even over a period of years. Most people consider
water, alcohol, and dilute dishwashing detergent safe.
A microfiber cloth is good. It can be used dry, moistened with water,
moistened with alcohol, or with a couple of drops of dishwashing
detergent in a bowl of water. Wipe radially to avoid making circular
scratches or smudges.
