You're over thinking this whole process. You don't have to baby these discs. Take the disc and wipe it off with a clean t-shirt.

I don't like to use microfiber cloths either because of that same reason! I recommend to use a soft lint free cloth ( as you've stated), and you'll be good to go.

I usually just use the bottom of whatever shirt that I'm wearing at the time. If there are a few specks of dust or tiny cloth fibers still on there afterwards, I just blow on it. That's always worked just fine for me.

This is what I do Joe

If the discs are handled properly you never have to clean them.

Usually I use a little "ha" (breath) and a wipe on a clean t-shirt. No-no's would be toothpaste, soft-scrub, and car polish.

I have stayed away from cloth for some time now. Use sunlight, I have noticed spider webbing on Cd's using t-shirts and such. I have 6 pairs of different color sunglasses that come with silk-sock baggie and extras, as the factory is near me.
No spray or solutions, breath has worked with an ever gentle glide of a silk caress.

Default Cleaning the Blu-ray Disc Surface.

I was wondering how the rest of you clean the playable surface of your blu-ray discs without scratching them.

Occasionally, discs that I order, even new ones, have little specs of lint or markings such as light fingerprints (or they attract such things). How do you clean the surface of the discs without scratching, scuffing or otherwise marring the finish?

Blu-rays have a scratch resistant coating on them, and they're very easy to clean. I just mix 1/4 of rubbing alcohol and the rest with tap water in a spray bottle and, wipe the disc with a non-abrasive soft cloth, and the disc will look brand new. You don't have to waste money, and buy one of those expensive DVD/CD cleaning solutions, or a DVD/CD cleaning machine kits. You can get a small bottle of rubbing alcohol from any dollar store for a $1.00, if you don't already have a bottle in your household. The only way to scratch a blu-ray, is when it's been cleaned by using a buffing machines or it's been severely mishandled and carelessly abused from negligence.

I'm surprised by the number of blu-ray discs I receive from new orders that, despite the coating, arrive with scratches and scuffs on them. I'm sure it's partly an issue of quality control at the production facilities the studios use. This seems to occur more often with titles issued from some studios than others.

Where are you buying your blu-rays from because, there's a possibility they might have been previously opened, manhandled and resealed. I've purchased a lot of brand new blu-rays, and I've never received one that was tarnished, or scratched. Some used blu-rays that I ordered had some fingerprints, but not scratched, but most of my used blu-ray were in mint condition when I received them.

Would cleaning the blu-ray disc surface with the same cleaning solution and cloth used to clean plasma and LCD screens be safe? Just a thought.

I just use a microfiber glasses cleaning cloth and some lukewarm water. I usually use a spray bottle filled with water on the finest mist that the bottle can provide and spay the cloth once or twice that's it.

I've decided to try the type of fine microfiber cloth used for eyeglasses and camera lenses. For fingerprints and smudges that are more set in, I'll try a mild rubbing alcohol-water mix applied with the type of microfiber cloth used to clean screens. I imagine this should keep my discs quite clean.

If you don't have any small children who's always touching the monitor, and leave fingerprints all over it, you shouldn't have to use any solvent to clean it. Since I don't have any kids in my household, I use a feather duster and wipe the dust off of it, every week. The screen doesn't have any oily smudges, or fingerprints because there is nobody here but me.

The best solution for optimum results is to pee on the disc and then throw it in the clothes dryer at high heat for 15 minutes.
