Damaged CDs and DVDs are a common problem.  Is it really possible to fix skipping and other problems with a cleaner?

by Lynn Phillips

At first I was a little skeptical, so I didn't even bother to take my 303 Sonic Blast out of its packaging. It had been a week or so since I received it, and I tossed it in a pile of new detailing supplies.

One night I decided to rent a movie so I could kick back and relax. I had been working on the Caddy and spent way too may hours in the garage.

When I got home with the movie, I popped up a fresh batch of popcorn, slipped the movie into the player and settled into my easy chair to get comfortable. Life was good and I was beginning to relax.

About five minutes into the movie it started having problems. The movie kept skipping and stopping! Don't you just love it when you go rent a movie that you can't watch? Now agitated, I jumped back out of my easy chair to eject the DVD only to find that it was a scratched up mess. It looked like my son's year old Batman DVD after he used it as a Frisbee in the backyard.

At this point I considered calling it a night and going to bed when I remembered that CD/DVD cleaner stuff in the garage. I got the bottle of Sonic Blast and a microfiber towel from the garage thinking "We'll just see how good this stuff is or if it's a gimmick!" The DVD was hacked up pretty bad, so this would certainly be a good test of the product.

I read the directions and, because I was a little skeptical and the DVD was in such horrible shape, I cleaned it twice. As I was polishing the DVD dry, I thought to myself, "...there is no way anything will make this DVD play again..."

Back in the house it was judgment time! I put the DVD back into the player and hit play. I didn't even bother to sit back down, because I thought that I would just have to get up again to take the movie back out. After 5 minutes there was no skipping or stopping. I got through the area where it last stopped and mumbled under my breath "Well I'll be darned!" It worked!

After watching for about 10 minuets I sat down and got comfortable again with my popcorn. I watched the entire movie without any interruptions and couldn't believe how well the 303 Sonic Blast worked.

The next day I went around the house cleaning DVD's, CD's and my 6 year old son's computer game discs, some of which I thought were trash. Later that day I told my 17 year old daughter how well Sonic Blast works and I haven't seen the bottle since. It disappeared into her room to take care of her 100's of CD's and DVD's.

I'm not a hi-fi expert, so I searched out other reviews of this product.  I found onhi-fi was equally enthusiastic.  I asked 303 to provide proof in the form people can hear or see.  This is what we got:

I highly recommend 303 Sonic Blast. It performed better than expected and was extremely easy to use. I also noticed that my DVD's had a much clearer picture and my CD's a much better sound quality. At the price they charge for DVD's and CD's these days the 303 Sonic Blast is absolutely worth using for maintenance. A single small bottle cleans and restores up to 300 discs.

Now I guess I will have to get another bottle as I don't think my daughter will be giving it up any time soon.

Sonic Blast is available from Autopia Car Care.
