If you ever play a Wii gaming system, knowing how to clean a Wii game disk that is scratched, which it will inevitably become at some point, this is a good skill to know. Rather than becoming frustrated by a scratched Wii game disk, follow these inexpensive tips to clean it.
To clean a Wii game disk that is scratched, you will need:
- A soft, cotton rag
- Liquid metal polish
- Toothpaste (yes, toothpaste) is a great way to remove small scratches from a Wii game disk. Simply squeeze a small amount of toothpaste onto a soft, cotton rag. Slowly rub the toothpaste in circles onto the Wii game disk that is scratched, starting on the inside and working your way out. Afterward, dip a clean portion of your rag in lukewarm water and clean the toothpaste from the Wii game disk in circles, again starting on the inside and working your way out. Do not use whitening toothpaste to do this as it contains grit that can cause more scratches to your Wii game disk.
- Liquid metal polish is another product that can be used to clean a Wii game disk that is scratched. Apply it the same way as the toothpaste above. Dab a small amount of liquid metal polish on to a soft, cotton rag and rub it onto the scratched Wii game disk in circles, working from the inside of the disk out. Once applied, dip a clean portion of the rag in lukewarm water and remove the liquid metal polish from the Wii game disk in circles, working from the inside out.
- If the Wii game disk that is scratched is beyond repair by using the methods above, you may want to consider hiring a professional disk cleaner to clean your Wii game disk. The cost of disk cleaning services varies between $15 and $30, but can be cheaper than replacing the Wii game disk. These services can be found online, and possibly in your local yellow pages.
