I've always wondered how well those work. Are they worth it? Some folks say that you have to clean like normal, and THEN use it. What's the point!? Let us know what you think. . .B
One reason that I am not a vinyl guy is the way an audiophile in college played his albums.He used some kind of Kodak photgraphic fluid to wet the entire record and rested a 3 o4 4 inch brush across all the tracks...not for cleaning, but for playing each and every LP.

All:details-i use a vpi rec wash brush, i wet it, put a tiny droplet of dawn on my finger and rub it across the brush, it lathers up nicely. I wet the record with the filtered water from the under sink filters. I soap up both sides of the record and scrub in hand about 20-30 degrees at a time all around both sides of the record. i rinse the soap off under the filtered water rubbing fingers across the grooves until i dont feel the slipperiness of the dawn anymore.THEN i use the sink dish sprayer vigorously (makes a watery mess) to get the last vestiges of the dawn out of the grooves. dry with a couple of paper towels or terry towel.wave it around for a bit to finish drying and put on the platter, use the carbon fiber brush to get any fibers off and PLAY!i had a nitty/advisor machine but the fan impellers self destructed. POS! my next rcm will be a vpi!!! meanwhile, this method has proved to be more than adequate.
