    I found a DVD at the side of the road, covered in mud and snails and all sorts of grot like that... I just soaked it in warmish water for a few hours, and very gently wiped the rubbish off it with a paper towel, then let it air dry and gently wiped off remaining non-water-soluble stuff (really just fingerprints)- it worked fine. I think this method and the chinagraph pencil one are for getting rid of oily/greasy stuff like fingerprints, as the wax pencil and the butter are presumably both solvents for grease. If the disk has any solid nasties on it, like grit or sand, I wouldn't do this as you would risk scratching the disk more- maybe rinse the PB off under a running tap?

    I had some CDs in my car that got some gunk stuck on them pretty well. The wet wipes that restaurants provide work pretty well. Just another good reason to keep them handy!

    Its works about 60% of the time and hay if the game dont work dont smear the peanut butter on it anyway cause you have nothing to lose
