Seriously - don't throw away another DVD until you've tried this...I wish I knew about this simple fix a long time ago!
- someone try this -I was doubtful so I tried it on a DVD that wouldn't play more than 2 sec. I used a banana to rub it in since I read that somewhere.

How To Remove DVD Scratches With a Banana — Home Hacks
"Scratches on discs happen. After one of our favorite DVDs started to skip after receiving a few too many scratches we started to look for a solution to salvage it. Sure there are DVD scratch removal devices that you can buy, but why waste money when there is a solution to be found right in our own homes? Using toothpaste, a banana, a rag and window cleaner we will show you how to remove scratches from a DVD and with any luck the unplayable will become playable." Joelle Alcaidinho

Peanut buttery fix for scratched DVDs. I just tried this on a DVD that was long gone, so I wasn't worried about it. Rubbed some peanutbutter on Doc McStuffins, buffed it all off with tissue and boom, played like a charm!
