Thread Name: Cleaning Filthy CDs
Subject: RE: Cleaning Filthy CDs
for heaven's sake, don't put filthy discs in a drive or player, even for a 'test'. You could render the player or drive dysfunctional. It's not worth it.

Have had good luck with just gently washing them like you would a dish with clean soapy water, rinse with plenty of clear warm rinse water, blot dry on a lint-free towel, let air dry the rest of the way before putting in a drive. But I'm not an authority, I think you might want to wait for a true expert to put in 2 cents on this.
