I looked online and found these tutorials that suggest toothpaste and rubbing alcohol. I tried both but neither worked. And some even crazier ones like peanut butter and soda. SO anything that really works?

THanks

ahh try rubbing lotion all over it and then wipe it off with a very soft cloth that sometimes works

toothpaste works only if it has an abrasive like baking soda in it.

alternatively...just get some baking soda and warm water..and make a slurry...use a toothbrush to "sand" away the scratches.

Pony up the $10-20 you'd spend toward a $30 machine and just cop a new one.

DVD's don't cost a thing anymore bro.
