"I've been playing records for 50 years and cutting record masters for almost 40. I have an extensive record collection and love vinyl as much as I ever did. I have used other record cleaners, but The Disc Doctor's products are, in my opinion, without peer. I have noticed vast improvement even with records that looked relatively clean before cleaning. I clean every record now before playing. I can't put into words how much more involving it makes my record listening. Do yourself a favor and stop thinking about ordering this stuff and do it! You won't be disappointed." - Kevin Gray, Owner, Cohearent Audio, LLC


"I use the Disc Doctor's fluid & brushes...I like this fluid a lot...these are my favorite brushes." - Michael Fremer, Editor, musicangle.com & Senior Contributing Editor, Stereophile

Ideal for Multiple Step Cleaning with Fluids & Rinse cycles with Dsistilled , RO or Ultra-Pure water with Mutiple Vacuum Wands - Hint - Works a Treat combined with Disc Doctor Quickwash RCM Fluid & Miarcle Brushes to apply Cleaning Fluids to Deep Cleaning of your valuable Records

* Cleaning fluids should be applied to the brush and
then dispersed about the disc rather than directly to
the record surface.
** Rinse water can be applied directly to the record
surface but the brush should be well wetted whenever
it contacts the disc. We do not find the brushes
supplied with current record cleaning machines to be
adequate for either cleaning or rinsing

The slot in the vacuum wand of most machines is sized and configured in such a manner that fluids tend to be evaporated as much as sucked through the tube and into an appropriate reservoir. This process results in sufficient turbulence at the face of the vacuum slot to aerosol fluids onto the vacuum strips and the record. At the least this necessitates that the wand be rinsed between wash and rinse steps, slowing the process down. 

Modifications for VPI and similar machines:

1) Purchase a second wand and column, dedicating one to the wash cycle and another to the rinse. 

2) Remove & rinse the single wand in distilled water between each wash-rinse step.

The Finest NO-RINSE Fluid available for cleaning Vinyl Phonograph Recordings.

The Disc Doctor's QuickWash Record Cleaner is a blend of purified water and high purity, biodegradeable surfactants specially formulated for cleaning vinyl phonograph recordings with vacuum-assisted record cleaning machines. Our QuickWash solution can also be removed manually using high nap, pure cotton terry cloth or equivalent microfiber cloth.

The Disc Doctor's QuickWash Record Cleaner works best with 20-30 sec of light spreading using a back & forth motion followed by vacuum-assisted fluid removal. Highly effective removal of mold & mildew.

For many The Disc Doctor's QuickWash Solution will be all the record cleaner your vinyl record collection will ever need.

 
Unless you've cleaned your records with The Disc Doctor's Miracle Record Cleaner, you've yet to enjoy all the music your records have to offer! Every record in your collection should be cleaned before you play it again, and every record added to your collection should be cleaned before playing.
 
Every record, even if thought to be cleaned, is soiled with a wide range of dirts and contaminants, including mold and mildew. Vinyl discs are also coated with sticky mould-release compounds. Contaminants between the groove and diamond stylus or steel needle cause mistracking and are abrasive resulting in unnecessary, excessive wearing of both record and stylus. By interfering with proper groove tracing, dirty records produce inaccurate, noisy sound.

Quick Wash Considerations
 
Each bottle is accompanied by a 4 oz. dispenser with a flip-cap having a 1mm orifice to allow for easier dispensing directly to the record. The general instructions are to spread 2-2.5 mL (1/2 tbsp) of Quick Wash solution around a record using the applicator that came with the machine (10-15 sec.), then to vacuum, followed by brief air drying. Using the wet cleaning brush will improve cleaning by more effectively mixing fluid in the groove. Allow for light scrubbing for very dirty discs. 
 
This no-rinse solution has been specifically developed for use with a vacuum-based cleaning machine but may be used for manual cleaning. Although the standard Disc Doctor record cleaner and brushes afford audibly more thorough cleaning, many customers will gladly trade the difference for the convenience. We believe the Quick Wash solution offers superior cleaning when used with vacuum-assisted machines. The ingredients include high purity water, a proprietary blend of non-hazardous, biodegradable surfactants and propanol.
 
"But pick as I might, I can't find any essential faults with the Disc Doctor approach to cleaning records--and while this sort of thing defies the assignment of stars & checks (so I won't), you can consider this a recommendation. The fluid in particular makes sense, as does the company's recommended approach to using it; I really like the fact that the pads are replaceable; none of this stuff strikes me as overpriced; and, like I said, it seems to work very well. Unless the fluid you have is the fluid you love (wait, that came out wrong...), you should give this a whirl."  Art Dudley, Editor,

Disc Doctor Miracle Record Brush 

 

 

 If you're not cleaning your records well now, you should, and you'll be hard pressed to find a better way to do so economically than the Disc Doctor's Miracle Record Cleaner. - Soundstage Reveiw

A "Miracle Record Cleaner"? Perhaps not, but then I haven’t located a reliable source for distilled Holy Water yet, either. What does seem miraculous, in this day of overpriced tweaks and magic dots, is discovering a state-of-the-art product, affordably priced, thoroughly engineered, and invaluable to both the impecunious collector of obscure recordings and the affluent audiophile with a reference quality system.

  • After Cleaning Your Prized LPs  treat them to  New Anti Static Inner Sleeves
  • Don`t put  freshly cleaned LPs back into dirty old paper inner sleeves 
  • Mobile Fidelity ( Mofi ) , Quality Record Pressings ( QRP  ) ,
  • MA Recordings , Nagoaka , Japanese & Polylined
  • select type if required at the checkout
  • Store Cleaned Vinyl in a New Outer Sleeve Poly or PVC   
  • Superior Cleaning with the Award Winning Disc Doctor Fluids & Brushes          
It is nevertheless a safe bet that  99%+ % of Audiophiles & Record Collectors would agree that LPs shouldn't be stored in plain paper sleeves.  
 
Cheap, non-acid-free paper sleeves degrade with time. Paper is derived from the cell wall of plants; lignin, one of the chemicals contained in the cell walls, is unstable and light sensitive and decomposes into acidic products. While bleaching removes the lignin, the paper making process produces other detrimental byproducts such as hydrochloric acid or sulfuric acid. Producing true, acid-free paper (pH >6) requires buffering with neutralizing chemicals. Paper sleeves are also hygroscopic (water absorbing) and as a consequence facilitate the growth of mold or fungus on the LP.The rationale for storing and preserving vinyl records in high quality, chemically inert, inner sleeves includes:Neutralizing the record's static charge and preventing static buildup when pulling the LP out of the record sleeve Preventing the record jacket or dirt from scratching the record
 
Preventing dust from sticking or becoming embedded in the record
