Paper towels should not be used to wipe off your discs. Kleenex, toilet paper, cotton swabs... keep those in the bathroom. I understand your desire to grab something quickly to clean off some fingerprints or dust, but discs are not like your kitchen counter or your bathroom floor.Allsop s FastWipes are a lint-free textured cleaning cloth. The textures act like little fingers to grab dirt, sweat and fingerprints and lift them away from the CD. That way you are not just rubbing the dirt all over of the disc.
