I almost never watch TV, unless I visit my family. Happened to be there Tues. morning to catch about 5 minutes of one of the morning shows talking about helpful hints. Anway, if you have a scratched DVD that skips badly, you can apply Pledge furniture polish (spray type) onto the back of the DVD, and then wipe it off with a clean rag. The skip will stop. Tried this tonight on a DVD I thought was a goner. It totally worked! Very cool!
