I'm not a chemist, but I think you should make certain that your cartridge is aligned properly, your stylus is in good condition a stylus can crack or shatter rather easily if it lights on a hard surface (the plith, top plate etc)every analog person should have a 20 x to 30 x magnifier for occaisonalsuperficial examination for damage, for wear there are some expert shop owners with many years of experience and a high quality 80x to 200x binocular microscope for wear, some claim it's near impossible unle ...
I suspect an alternative to this would be using a side-tap system such as a reverse-osmosis water supply that is 'cleaner' than typical tap water. .
I'm afraid I can't speak to the mold issue Fiji5555 raised, but after reading through the replies this morning I just wanted to add the cleaning regimen recommended by companies such as Rega and Linn. Linn says that the best method of cleaning records is to let the stylus remove the dust, then clean the stylus. Their opinion is that the dust that inevitably settles on records is not harmful because it's on the surface, not down in the groove, and that most record cleaning devices end up forcing at least some of that dust down into the groove where it can do damage. I've followed their advice for over 20 years with no deleterious effect on my record collection, more peace of mind, and greater pleasure in listening from this relaxed, non-fussy approach to vinyl playback. Not that any of you are fussy, but for most of my early years of record playing, and cleaning, I think I focused more on the potential damage my records could sustain rather than on the pleasure of the music they contained.
