Cleaning Your Vinyl


Active Member
Having just returned to buying vinyl I'm looking at purchasing something
to keep my vinyl as clean as possible. Quite a selection to choose from so
I would be interested to hear your opinions/recommendations.

An anti static brush is a must imho. Use before every play, inexpensive. Some decent antistatic inner selves are another must-have. No point in cleaning the records and then storing in paper sleeves.

After that, it depends how much you want to spend. You can buy sprays of cleaning product, which is the cheapest option. A bit more money gets you a Spin Clean or similar and yet more money gets you a full-on record cleaning machine.

I use a Pro-ject RCM. It does a good job imho and is a quick way of cleaning a few records. I've also got a bottle of a spray solution called Covers, or something like that. It smells a bit rough but is good for one off cleans and shifting really heavy grot from used vinyl.
