Cleaning discs before burning

Who here cleans discs before burning them? I know, I do.

Sometimes I come across discs with lint on them. I try to get rid of them to ensure a good burn. Who else has come across this? I wonder if its okay to clean before burning.

Small dark dots on the disc after burning.

So I have burned some GameCube games in the past months and some of them have small dark dots on them. I was wondering, do they affect anything at all such as the burn quality and everything. I used Ridata discs for those. I have seen this on some of the games I've burned such as Twilight Princess. ...
