Today I’m testing THIS PIN from Apartment Therapy. The post claims they have found a way to save scratched DVD’s. When I originally pinned this, I was so excited. Kids are so hard on DVD’s! I learned the hard way that the family rule just has to be that kids can’t touch DVD’s. Ever. We still have a few Disney movies that skip. It’s so frustrating! Could a banana and toothpaste possibly save these movies? I was desperate enough to give it a try.
So basically you rub the toothpaste on, wipe it off, then rub the banana on and wipe it off. Then you finish with a spray of Windex and wipe until it’s perfectly clean.
I can’t tell you how weird it felt to be rubbing a banana on a DVD. I’m just glad my husband wasn’t home. I didn’t need to hear any snarky comments along the lines of, “So did you see that on Pinterest, too?”
The verdict? Didn’t work. My DVD still stuck just like it did before. Bummer! I was really hoping this would at least decrease the amount of skipping a little bit. Nope. Total Pin Bomb.
