K so I have a bajillion DVDs that have some sort of scratch or skip or otherwise “issue” due to “overhandleling” by my cute kidlets. Ahhh, someday I’ll look back on this and smile. Today I don’t. Cuz that’s $$$ down the drain, right?
Not so fast.
I recently Googled how to fix DVD scratches, and up came the most easy, awesome, FREE (if you care about your dental health…please say you do!) fix:
And it totally works. Here’s the short and sweet play by play using my **favorite workout video:
See my friend, Ellen Barrett, there? Well, she had a little scratch that would cause a skip in the DVD during my workout. Hate that. Luckily I had the section memorized, but still. Pretty frustrating.
I just grabbed a tube of toothpaste, added the same amount I’d use to brush my teeth, and rubbed the paste in circles around the back of the DVD.
A quick rinse with water, a little dry with a towel, and we were set to get our Pilates on again! I was THRILLED to see no skipping – not even a hint of one – during the workout. SO happy. (That’s me smiling. This is me smiling and sweating: ’:) )
Now I’m on a mission to try it with all of those
annoying kid-friendly DVDS I thought were ruined. Um, yay! ??? I think.
There. you. go. Free Fix. Keeps your DVDs in working order, and they’re minty fresh (which, let’s be honest, DVD’s are a bit lacking, am I right?).
**A little info on my video: I love it!! first and foremost. It’s my go-to workout when I 1.) don’t feel like exercising, 2.) want to see results fast, and 3.) want to either challenge myself or need to take things down a notch that day. To me, Ellen is easy to follow and is a natural at giving calls and directions. The workout is great for all workout levels. I am up to doing most of the Level 3s, but there are still some 2s that are even too challenging. (Those helicopters and push-ups in planks kick my trash!) I bought the DVD at Wal-mart for under $10 a few years ago, and now you can find it on Amazon HERE. Wow! It’s $5 bucks now! Awesome! Let me know if you get one, and if you like it!! (By the way, she did not pay me to say this…she has no clue who I am, but I would LOVE to take a class from her. Ellen Barrett, give me a call!)
