I talked my kids into watching The Bee Movie on our last long car ride. It can be difficult to find a movie that both of my girls agree to watching. My three year old is Barbie obsessed and my 6 year old just wants it her own way. Tired of their stubbornness and admittedly eager to spend some quiet time with my husband, I decided to choose the movie for them. Just far enough into the movie that the kids are quiet for more than 20 seconds- the movie began skipping- we have a scratched DVD.
What do we do?
We turn to Pinterest of course!
There’s a Pin for that!
There’s ALWAYS a Pin for that!
Repair a Scratched DVD with a Banana?
Okay so now I am suppose to believe that rubbing a banana on a scratched DVD is suppose to repair the scratch?
I have been duped before but this one was just hard to believe.
Then I read the comments and there were others actually claiming it really works!
Okay so now
I HAD to try this because I was beginning to believe it might really work.
Here’s What I Did
Unpeeled a banana (saved the peel)
Rubbed the gooey banana all over the DVD
Grabbed the Peel and rubbed it over the DVD
Wiped it all off with a microfiber cloth.
Used a little water to wipe off the sticky icky.
Replayed the movie.
Unfortunately I didn’t fast forward it to the defective part of the DVD and I let my kids, once again, get suckered into the movie long enough for me to realize the
BANANA DID NOT REPAIR THE SCRATCHED DVD!
What a pin-fail!
I feel so gullible.
So now, of course, my kids are very eager to watch The Bee Movie– Pinterest also suggests using toothpaste or even peanut butter to repair a scratched DVD! Should I try it? Of course!
