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. Typically, the package contains a vial with a special liquid and a sponge or disposable wipes. In addition to these, the kit can include the container, allowing in the truest sense of the expression "blow dust" from the tracks of an optical disk.
