I would say don't use anything other than maybe water. Just breath on it a little to fog it up and use a tissue. Make sure you wipe from the hole out and not in a circle... that just sounds wrong doesn't it?

Yes, you should wipe in a straight line from the center hole outward to the edge. Also, I used a little soapy-water once when it was caked-up, and it worked fine. ( I loaned a disc to a friend and learned my lesson).

If you wipe in a circle, it scratches the disc more than if you wipe from the hole out... it still sounds wrong.
