Not all toothpastes will work, but some have a micro-abrasive that works like a polish to remove scratches in semi-hard surfaces such as CDs & DVDs.  There are commercially available plastic polishes that are more reliable and consistent.  Here's a tip: When removing scratches from CD/DVDs work from the center outward in a radial pattern, not in a circular pattern around the disk.

Apparently, baking soda toothpastes work the best from what I have been able to determine, though no one really wants to give more information than that.  Essentially, it works by removing a portion of the disk and making the scratch shallower.
What I want to know, and this may be a stupid question, wouldn't rinsing the CD afterwards cause the disk to warp?

do we just go in any generic store and buy toothpaste that says "mirco-abrasive toothpaste"? I mean like what kind of toothpaste do I look for? I use Crest multi-... something. I'm sorry I can't think straight right now...lolz
