Vinyl Record Cleaning - Five tips that will keep your LP's in tip top condition

Vinyl records are without doubt the most faithful way to reproduce music. But that is only true if they are kept in good condition, free of those annoying pops and crackles that can ruin the musical experience. These problems are caused by dust being attracted to the record grooves, causing the stylus to bounce over them. This problem is solved by using something to dislodge the dust - brushes, cloths and fluid are the most popular and practical solutions.
Whatever you use to clean your records there are a few basic rules and cleaning tips that will help you keep your vinyl record collection in top condition.

Tip 1. Clean your vinyl records little and often
Have you heard the saying 'a stitch in time saves nine'? It means prevention is far better and easier than trying to rescue something. The same is true for your record collection, regular care will provide a liftime of quality listening. Clean your records often and you will be rewarded.

Tip 2. Use a two-stage approach
Use a combination of cleaning methods for best results. For example using a cleaning fluid to remove the worst of the grime is probably something you don't want to do before every play. But using a brush or cloth before every play is easy and will make a real difference to the audio quality.

Tip 3. Buy the best quality products you can afford
You tend to get what you pay for and this is also true for vinyl cleaning kits. Cheaper kits are cheap for a reason, smaller cloths, weak, dilute or low-grade cleaning fluids.

Tip 4. Watch the how to clean vinyl records video
Alongside is a video that was made to show the best way to use vinyl cleaning fluid. It highlights how important it is to use two full sized record cleaning cloths to get the full benefit of the record cleaning fluid that you use. Obviously we would recommend the VinylClear deep track cleanser - but we would wouldn't we?

Tip 5. Clean your stylus on a regular basis
A recent article in HI-Fi Choice magazine said stylus cleaning fluid is 'A highly efficient and very safe way of cleaning a stylus; used regularly it will enhance LP sound and help preserve discs and stylus...the bottle of fluid is tiny but the amount used in each application is really minimal'.

Most dust is removed by the cleaning process but it is usual for some to soften but not detach from the groove wall. This may be collected by the stylus.

Everthing you need to keep your vinyl pop and crackle free.
