Use a microfiber cloth, they're very soft and don't scratch.

Default Good Cleaning Practice

With Blu-ray having a hard protective layer, cleaning is not as much of an issue as with DVD or CD formats, as most soft fabrics with do the job, ideally combined with a soft cleaning solution.

The problem with relying upon your t-shirt or other clothing, is that it only takes there to be one microscopic piece of grit, sand, dirt or otherwise to be stuck to the garment for a decent sized scratch to occur. Then you are in trouble as you will need to find a disc repairer to get it out.

The key detail when cleaning is not to repeated clean over the same area, take less passes, this minimizes the risk of causing a scratch.

In the industry, we recommend optical grade cleaning cloths and a water based CD solution for cleaning, we even have a machine that cleans discs in 3 seconds which is designed for use by traders that require many discs to be cleaned at once either after repair or for rental.

For anyone that is interested, the best quality cloth and spray can be found if you search for us by our name.

I gotta try something.
My Cannibal Holocaust keeps freezing and sure enough there's some sort of thing on the disc. Maybe a drink spilled on it?

And just in case you think I'd ever have that happen to one of my discs, a pal bought this for me and watched it before giving it to me.

I appreciate that he got it for me but sure wish he had taken better care of it!

I put a little bit of water on a cloth used for cleaning eye glasses and had no problem removing the stains.
After letting the disc air dry, I put it in my player had had no problem whatsoever with playback so SUCCESS!

Whew...

Default Microfiber towel?

Is a microfiber towel ok to use, or is it only microfiber cloths?

I would think that it is the material (microfiber) and not the size of the material. Towel or cloth should work.

One word of caution: I once used a microfiber terry cloth from a Monster screen cleaning kit. For some reason it started to shed fibers that were left all over the two discs I had cleaned. Oddly, I was unable simply to wipe them off and had to resort to rinsing the discs under the tap. The water did remove all the fibers and the discs played back perfectly fine after air drying for a day or two. Just be careful it doesn't lose fibers, otherwise you should be fine.

Rubber up and down on disc. Best only way down, again, down, again.


Not do rubber <---> on disc cause laser can't read it.

This works on any kind of optical disc-take a small amount of liquid hand soap and put the disc data side up under running water, gently rub the soap on the disc with your finger tips then rinse it off and then dry it off gently using a dry soft cloth (old clean under shirts work really well) with a linear motion from center to edge. Simple, huh?

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.
Could it work to remove the solution on the disc from a cleaning solution spray? I used to srayed on my Blu-Ray disc for awhile and now I realized It stayed there and I can't remove it.

IF I had to clean it (as in finger prints, not scratches), I would use the microfibre cloth that I use to clean my glasses (there are varying degree of quality).

I did receive a brand new BD with a finger print and the movie got stuck (scene stuttering and not moving on) so I removed the disc, noticed the finger print, removed the offending finger print with the cloth for cleaning eye glasses and the disc was fine after that.
