Toothpaste works great at removing scratches on the glass of your watch as well. Take a little and rub it into your glass surface with a rag. Like magic the scratches can vanish.

i don't know if it will work. i'm going to try it on a cd that i really don't care much about just in case.

I will do the same...Use an old CD or DVD that I don't care about. I am excited to see if it actually works. I have heard so many different ways to clean a CD or DVD - Maybe I have finally found the right answer!
