I believe him.

Actually, I have repaired *light*  scratches with
nothing more than a pad of felt.  Heavy buffing over the affected
area, while it didn't *remove* the scratch (it was still visible) the
disc did play afterwards.

I guessed, at the time, the heat generated by the buffing slightly
rounded the edges of the scratch - enough for the player to be able to
cope with, anyway.  But I'm not advocating this as a repair method :-)

Ordinary plain white Colgate  - not sure about the additives, though.

No fear - I've got more than enough problems with the one I've already

Actually, there's many a true word....  some of the so-called
