I use D4. Is that ok or is there better shit. I saw some really expensive stuff on needle doctor but I don't really wanna spend $100 bucks on the stuff.

Thoughts?

dish soap and lukewarm water, right in the sink. doesn't harm labels 99% of the time.

here's some of my freshly washed wobblays drying in the dish rack

wood glue:


time intensive but i'm told it works by someone who's tried on 78s and LPs.

Really? They look great but I'm scared I'll fuck up bad with water. Hmmm

Love D4...used that for 20 years..

The wood glue trick looks great and what a sound difference!
Or I could by D4 for $4 bucks a pop. Wood glue seems more effective tho.

Has anyone tried that zerodust for the stylus? I've been thinking of forking out the money for that...
Posted: Jan 21, 2012 6:38 pm
 
Oh, and you that use the D4, do you use the felt cleaning brushes with them or just some microfiber cloth? I've only used cloth and was wondering if that thing would make a difference.

I use the big cushion thing. D4 on one end and other end to dry.

It can only be done by Swiffer.

put your fav lp in your cat liter box, let your cats piss on it for a good 2 days...then play.

Go threw the car wash with your windows down and hold up the records....only costs 3.00.

i thought the D4 was 50% denatured alcohol and 50% distilled water?

I dunno. How does Tim Warren clean his records? He's gotta lot of records.
Posted: Jan 23, 2012 4:57 pm
 
he has a vpi. when we were living in harrisburg he brought over this massive jazz lp collection that we were cleaning/ grading for sale on ebay. he left his laptop under the vpi and the thing drained all the cleaning juice onto the computer and it got fucked, so be careful where you put it!

I don't know how much the D4 liquid costs, but you can make a gallon of VPI fluid from this concentrate.

Using this method, at the rate of one side a day, it would take you longer than the rest of your life to clean each of your records just once each and you wouldn't be able to listen to any records while the drying one sat on your turntable. Absurd!

Ha!

I think Brad thought Bermuda Joe was meaning pussy.
Posted: Jan 26, 2012 10:18 pm
 
i did not mean to imply that. i have no idea how bazooka joe cleans his pussy but i assume it is very, very clean.
Posted: Jan 27, 2012 9:42 am
 
i use a brillo pad, and boy is my wife pissed!

i was fuckin' with you because you said "seriously" like it was an unpresented idea. not like i came up with it or something. just that it was mentioned. that's all. move along.
Posted: Jan 27, 2012 10:11 am

PRISTINE PLATTERS.

For those interested I tried the wood glue method over the weekend. Slathered it, let it rest for 24 hours, then peeled it right off. It Totally works. It's definitely time consuming &slightly messy, but totally cleans the record.
Posted: Feb 21, 2012 9:54 am
 
good to know! thanks!
Posted: Feb 21, 2012 5:30 pm
 
yeah, i finally tried the wood glue trick, too - it did work pretty great! i had a handful of junk shop records that were in poor condition and pretty unlistenable, and i was really pleased at the results it had on them. the first one i tried, i didn't use enough glue, so the process of getting the glue off became a real chore, because i had to chip it off bit by bit - but if you get a good layer, it's not so bad. i found that i made a way bigger mess trying it on lp's than on 45's, too. it's pretty quick to put it on, but yeah, takes hours and hours to dry. if nothing else, though, it's made me really think back on and regret all the awesome records i've passed up in the bins because they were in such lousy shape...
Posted: Feb 22, 2012 4:37 pm
 
Depends on the damage. Records with little bits of crud stuck to them can be rescued, but if it's truly scratched you're out of luck.
Posted: Feb 23, 2012 1:41 pm
 
yeah, i've never had a very discerning eye for record damage - a big scratch i can see, of course, but a lot of records i find in junk store bins i often have no idea if the grooves are just completely fucked from rubbing up against other sleeveless records for so long, or if it's just 30 years worth of gunk and mildew. anyway, regular record cleaning kits never did much good with those kind of records, but the wood glue thing did wonders for a lot of records i thought were goners (so to speak).
