This product does not emit light of its own, so the standard review format will not be used and the product will not be assigned a rating. This website is mostly about light-emitting products, but occasionally, you'll see non-light emitting products on it too if it's something I really like or if it's a tool I use regularly in maintaing this website.

This is a disc repair gizmo, purported to remove scratches from all types of optical disc-based media -- such as audio CDs, CD-ROMs, CD-RWs, game program discs, photo discs, DVDs, etc.

It consists of a "carousel" to put the disc in, and a cleaning spray that consists of 70% water and 30% isopropyl alcohol.

 Size of product w/hand to show scale SIZE

To use the Disc Repair Kit, open the carousel by grasping it by its edges (on the white portion) with one hand, and using the other to lift the lid by gently prying out on the latch.

Place the dirty CD, CD-ROM, DVD, or other optical disc-based media inside, orienting the disc so its shiny side faces up (this is the opposite of how the disc would be loaded in the media player it was designed for).

Spray the disc surface with the included cleaning spray. A couple of brief "spritzes" should be MORE than enough.

Close the lid on the carousel, and gently press down on it until it snaps into place.

Holding the carousel in one hand again, use the other to grasp the "knob", and begin rotating the light-colored inner part of the lid clockwise (as though tightening it). Continue to crank it for 10 to 15 seconds.

Open the carousel as you did earlier (by grasping it by its edges {on the white portion} with one hand, and using the other to lift the lid by gently prying out on the latch) and remove your shiny "new" disc.
