How to Fix a Scratched CD With Turtle Wax


At times, you may come across a CD that has scratches that can cause it not to play correctly. Do not fret, however, because you can remove those scratches with a metal polish like Turtle Wax. You can use this method with both data and music CDs.

Things You'll Need

  • Turtle Wax
  • Old towel
  • Paper towels
  • Tissue
  • Place the scratched CD on a towel.

  • Put a generous amount (about 2 or 3 tbsp.) of Turtle Wax on a paper towel.

  • Buff the CD with the Turtle Wax on the paper towel. Work your way around the CD, making sure that you have covered the entire surface. Buff hard the places with the most scratches.

  • Leave the CD on the towel until it dries. Rub the CD with a tissue to wipe off the excess.
