Originally the "Tech Support Pits" were reports of the funniest tech support incidents, but over the years the

Thanks for the great picture!
Soap and hot water don't hurt CDs. I would spray some
citrus based organic cleaner onto it, let it soak for a few
minutes, and then scrub it under hot water with a clean
Dish soap should work too, but don't use dishwasher soap!
Dishwasher soap has abrasives in it.
