simple green is great as an all purpose cleaner, but it isnt as good as goo gone at removing stuff like glue.  Plus, it has a sickly sweet smell that I really do not like.



Have you tried the new, improved, "Simple Soylent Green"

If it's a keep case, I use a cotton bud (aka cotton swab) dipped in white spirit. Works well, but do as Rifter says and remove the actual cover from the case first as sometimes you get leakage.

And when all else fails, buy a replacement keep case. They're really not that expensive.  I often replace the keep case - if, for example, the hub is broken or there's a lot of residue on the case that I can't get off.  Or, if the clear cover is wrinkled (ugh!) or ripped.

I don't know if anyone would be able to tell an original from a replacement case, unless it's one of those with the lock tabs on it (Universal studio releases).

I have a big box full of brand new keep cases.  When I order online I often get my DVD's in envelopes instead of boxes and sometimes the cases are damaged.  Unfortunately we can't replace a sleeve so easily.

Speaking of replacement keep cases, anyone know of a good source for multi-disk keep cases (non-Scanovo of course)?  I have a few Scanovo 3-5 disc cases I would dearly love to replace with something a little less evil.
I don't wanna be like everyone else, that's why I'm a mod, see?
