Superior No-Rinse Cleaning for all Vinyl Phonograph Records!
Saturate a Disc Doctor's Miracle Record Brush with Quick Wash solution. Over 10 sec. Gently spread fluid throughout the groove area using a semi-circular motion in both clockwise and counter clockwise directions along the groove path. Remove fluid using vacuum [preferred], high nap pure cotton terry cloth or Scott toilet tissue. No rinse is required.
For more effective cleaning. Over 30 sec. Gently scrub 1/3 of the groove at a time, with a back and forth motion and then remove fluid. Allow to air dry for 10-15 minutes and then apply a clean carbon fiber brush before playing or storage. The carbon fiber brush should also be applied before and after every playback. Caution: when using vacuum fluid removal, avoid over drying as it can induce unwanted static charge.

"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
"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. ...you should give this a whirl." - Art Dudley, Editor, Listener Magazine Autumn, 1996
