RE: Ultrabit Platinum Plus vs. other treatments: brief impressions

When you say you used only one CD for comparison, did you actually use only one disc or multiple copies of the disc?

Most CD treatments claim to remove the mold release compound from the CD surface. Many CD treatments also contain an anti-static chemical. So, the first CD treatment you use will presumably remove the MRC as well as make the CD static free. I.e., using only one disc you cannot go back to a baseline of an untreated CD for comparison - the next treatment you try will have the advantage of having a treated disc to work with, as it were. And so forth. If only one CD is used for the comparison I suspect whichever CD treatment one uses last might well finish first.

Add'l info: Clark Johnsen ran a test of 22 fluids and gels that was published on PFO a couple years ago.
