Quick Record Cleaning

Record Cleaning Pad

My records are thrift store finds and bargain bin vinyl. Many are in good condition but need a deep groove cleaning. I usually quick clean them until I find time for deep cleaning. The quick clean is mostly to remove the dust and before play back.

The wetting agent (1:10 isopropyl alcohol and distilled water) is applied with the floor applicator and the drying pad is a Styrofoam paint edger.

The larger floor pad does a better job lifting the debris. The bristles are softer and shorter in comparison to the edger. After the record is dry the any shedding is swept away. Tags
