To clean dvd disc from dust, wipe it with a soft cloth made of natural materials. At this point your movement from the center diskand the edge of the radius, and not in the reverse order. It is recommended to wipe the surface of the diskand circle, because circular damage is much more difficult to get rid of.
Try to dust off the surface of the electronic device with a special spray sold for this purpose in computer stores. Direct a jet of air from the spray parallel to the surface of the diskand wait until the dust will not remain a trace.
To remove fingerprints from the surface of the dvd diskor any other contamination, moisten a soft cloth ethyl or isopropyl alcohol, then wipe dry with a electronic media radial movements.

Its solution can be used as special sets of industrial production and the means at hand. In addition, under the clean discs do not always mean the surface, sometimes it is about their contents.
Buy a special set for the care of optical disks, which includes the necessary components to clean the surface of CD/DVD media.
