Cleaning - wet or dry?


Recommended Posts

How do you clean your records?

 

Recently,  I've migrated from a brush/spray solution to just a double sided brush - bristles on one side, pad on the other.  So far it's been working really well.

When I first started using wet, the dispenser was more of a tip - you could put a nice even line in the brush; now, it seems most/all want you to spray the solution.  I’m not a fan.

 

I tried this Fluance brush.  I do the fiber side, then the pad side.  Does a surprisingly great job.

I'm still using a Discwasher D4 I've had forever (still in the box) and r/o water.

 

I still have the same Discwasher dating way back to the '80s and it works well. I have also been keeping micro fiber cloths near my turntable, with a spray bottle of 50/50 water and isopropyl alcohol. A local record store owner who has been doing this for many decades told me that is what he has always used.

 

I did some research along the way about fancy record cleaning machines, some of which started around $79 all the way up to hundreds of dollars or more. I don't have a great place to keep something like this and they mostly seemed like an answer to a question I didn't ask. I figure if I've been using the above methods for decades with good results and my records are happy! I guess I've been lucky to have mostly clean and good condition albums.
