All of our formulas are carefully designed to loosen and dissolve contaminants on the surface and in the grooves of the record. It is very difficult to clean a record by merely employing hard scrubbing. In fact, in some instances hard scrubbing will serve only to compact the contaminants further into the grooves.
Our research has also revealed that leaving the fluid on the record for an extended period of time increases the cleaning efficiency. This can be done by saturating the record on your RCM, on a soft cloth on a table or counter and leaving it for several minutes.
