All detergents are basically sodium laurel sulphate or sodium loreth sulphate. Even toothpaste, hand soap, bar soap, laundry soap, dish soap contains this ingredient.
It allows oils to mix with water by reducing the surface tension so as to make the water molecules (packets) smaller. By doing so the molecules can get at and dissolve oils where it could not get to previously.
Water is already the worlds greatest universal solvent (every element on the periodic table has been found dissolved in water). Sodium laurel sulphate is toxic though and should never be in the human body and perhaps should never even touch the skin as it might be adsorbed.
It makes you wonder about toothpaste. No wonder they give instructions for children's use to not use more than the size of a pea. They suggest to rinse thoroughly. Detergents don't kill bacteria. They just help wash them away. Detergent washes any food that the bacteria may eat.
Keeping an item dry is the best way to kill bacteria. Antibacteria soaps will just help create a super bacteria or super virus. It will just make things worse over time.
Basically use any detergent... rinse well... keep it dry, and avoid the antibacteria soaps.
Both scratches and dust can affect the playability of a game disc. Cleaning it can usually do the trick. Several techniques will clean the disc and make it useful again, saving time and money that would have been spent on a new game.
1. Before you apply disc cleaner, wipe with a microfiber cloth or other soft fabric. Wipe from the center of the disc outward. Don't wipe your Wii game disc in a circular motion, as this can damage it further. Test it to see if it works.
2. Rinse the disc with water if the first step didn't work. This will get rid of any oils that have gotten on the disc. If you see gunk that won't easily rinse off, use your fingers and a light dish soap to wipe it off underneath the stream of water. Remember to wipe from inside out, the light soap will serve as disc cleaner.
3. Dry the disc. First, shake off any excess water. Then set it out to air dry. Don't use a cloth for this step as that could add little fibers that may cause trouble. Once the disc is completely dry, try it in your Nintendo Wii to see if the disc repair worked.
4. Use rubbing alcohol with a cotton swab and gently coat the disc. Allow to dry. The disc will dry much quicker when wet with alcohol than it did with water. Still, you should wait until it's completely dry before you try the game disc in your Wii. By now, your disc should be working. Most disc read errors on Wiis are due to dust and dirt, rather than an actual scratch.
5. Spread toothpaste on the disc. This disc repair method should be used as a last resort. Using plain, white toothpaste, rub a quarter-sized amount in a circular motion with your fingers on the disc. Cover the reflective side of the disc completely. There should be a thin layer over the game disc when you're done.
6. Let the toothpaste sit on the disc until it is dry. This shouldn't take more than 10 minutes, although it depends on how much toothpaste you used.
7. Run the disc under warm water, rubbing the toothpaste off with your thumb. Make sure you get it all off and the disc is thoroughly rinsed. Allow to air dry. Then try the game.
check and make sure the CD's aren't scratched. If they are scratched use toothpaste to clean it by,
1.put 3 or 4 pea-sized dots of toothpaste around the cd.
2.take some kind of cloth or tissue paper to rub the toothpaste
3.rub from the middle to the outside, ACROSS the circular path (if
you're not rubbing in this direction, you're not doing any good)
4.and wash off the toothpaste and any tissue follicles that got attached to the cd, throw the tissue/cloth out
5.-dry the cd on a clean towel if this doesnt work take try blowing into the cd player, their may be a build up of dust.
that s--- just dnt work unless you stick something else under it other than your hand try a hair brush or toothpaste even a towel works , we've been beat for ten bucks it simply does not operate as it should....
Our Whirlpool Quiet Wash plus is 20+ years old and was on its way out the door because of erratic white residue, spotting, and film. Nothing worked: vinegar, different soaps, more soap, less soap. Today I opened it up and started digging behind covers and checking the insides - multiple places were clogged with a soap/mineral film - ugly! I sprayed the insides with Restore 4 (a tile cleaner) and scraped and brushed and broke loose the hidden deposits. The only thing I didn't open was the sump pump - but now know how to do so. (thanks FixYa)
Then I added about a 1/2 quart of vinegar and ran it full hot on the heavy wash cycle, added more vinegar between each cycle and let it dry. It looks super inside - the gunk is gone. I am now washing a load of glasses and am hoping for the best!
