alot of folks have mentioned various other solutions for disc scratch repair, most seems to have had varying degree of successes with them with the exception of toothpaste which worked for alot of people. So now i've decided to use it too, but i couldn't help but fret over whether toothpaste will actually do any harm to the disc in the long run, and i say that...because so far i haven't seen wide spread uses of this repairing method on cds, as most preferred to use these "professional" cd repairing kits such as skip doctor...etc. yet i found myself reluctant to use these products after i had read about the numerous negative feedbacks the product had received regarding it's poor performance and in few instances irreversible damage was done to the disc itself. Anyways because these music cds are very precious to me, i'd prefer not to try and fix them until i have ascertained that the repairing method is trustworthy and reliable. i don't want to have someone tell me years from now that i shouldn't have used toothpaste because tooth paste enlarges itself due to boredom overtime and your discs are screwed dude! kinda like the folks who once back in the days told me to spray my cassettes with hair spray to keep them from degrading in the long run...(yes yes please be showering me with laughter)
so, if i may have an assurance or two from the professional folks here, i'd take comfort knowing i did the right thing as i began the process of restoring my cds to their former glory. i thank you for your time in reading this rant, and thank you for the help offered.
