    So now that I finally got my DS lite, I figured I might as well see if I can sell my old one. Sadly the screen has been well used with bits and scratches on it from way too much Ouendan and EBA. I was wondering if toothpaste can really get rid of them?

    DO NOT use whitening toothpaste. It has tiny granules in it that will make ur disk even worse. I use regular old Colgate. It works if done properly.

    also, use white colored toothpaste. it works for minor scratches on cds. as for the the ds screen, you need something to cover up scratches and not just fill them in.. so i don't know what to use for that.

    Today, I tried Sensodyne toothpaste on the screen. It had a lot of blue colouring on it. I used a cotton bud to spread it and then used a tissue to clean up the excess and then used one of those ispropyl alcohol wipes to get rid the the little left overs. While it did make the screen way more cleaner, some of the scratches still remain. Does this mean I wasn't rubbing in the paste hard enough?
