We often receive inquiries about cleaning LP records, whether they've been spinning on a turntable or adorning your living room wall in an vinyl record frame. There are several ways to restore your vinyl records to their pristine condition, and we'll guide you through the possibilities.
An antistatic vinyl brush is an effective tool for effortlessly removing dust and other debris from your LP records. Gently place the brush on the vinyl surface and rotate it around. Ensure that you move the brush along the grooves of the vinyl record to eliminate all dust particles.
Before you embark on a thorough cleaning of your vinyl records, start by using the vinyl brush. This initial step helps mitigate the risk of damaging the record when cleaning. Feeling inspired to clean your LPs spontaneously? Click here for a reliable and safe brush.
Another simple method is using a microfiber cloth, which is excellent for removing dust from the vinyl record.
Gently rub the cloth over the vinyl surface, moving with the grooves to avoid damaging the LP. Use the cloth exclusively for cleaning the LP, and replace it with a new one if it no longer feels soft or becomes old. Microfiber cloths are readily available and cost next to nothing.
You can also thoroughly clean the vinyl record by lightly moistening it with dish soap. Here's what you'll need:
- A bowl
- Distilled water
- Dish soap
- Microfiber cloth
- Clean surface
Step 1: Create a cleaning solution by adding distilled water to the bowl and adding a few drops of dish soap. Stir well.
Step 2: Place the vinyl record on a clean surface and apply the soapy water to the surface. Ensure that the moisture is evenly distributed across the LP. Then, take the microfiber cloth and make circular movements on the vinyl record. Wipe counterclockwise, making sure to follow the grooves.
Step 3: Your vinyl record is now clean and refreshed! Dry the record by using the remaining part of the microfiber cloth to wipe the LP. Your LP is good as new!
