When you're watching a DVD and it freezes the screen or skips it can be really annoying and it can totally ruin your night. You can fix a scratched DVD with something you probably already have handy, peanut butter. Here's how you do it. Grab the DVD. Place a fingers worth of peanut butter on the scratched side. Give it a rub with your fingers and let it sit for about a minute. Then just gently wipe it off with something soft. Keep in mind this remedy may not work on really deep surface scratches, but in most case is does. That's it; you'll never have to have a scratched DVD ruin your evening ever again.
