Record cleaning tips

Cleaning your records should become a necessary ritual to all vinyl collectors. One of the most damaging things that you can do to your discs is to play them dirty. This is bad in two ways, first your needle will get a build up and dirt and crud, secondly for the needle tip pushing the dirt right into the record causing it permanent damage. There have been discussions on the best cleaning methods since the beginning and there still does not seem to be a clear cut best method. Some of the things we do know are below:

1 Always clean in the direction of the grooves (never across).

2 Only use distilled water. Tap water has chlorine and contaminants.

3 Alcohol was always used as a cleaner but now it is believed to break down the plastic.
