Time to wash some records

During our vacation I spent some time buying used records in Amsterdam. I ended up with quite some good stuff among which Porcupine and Ocean Rain by Echo and the Bunnymen, Japanese Whispers and Staring at the sea by the Cure, Closer by Joy Division, Keith Jarret’s Koln concert and the list goes on and on. Needless to say most of them, even if in great condition, needed a thorough washing. I use the Disco Antistat and, having finished their cleaning fluid, I decided to try and make some homemade based on the London Jazz Collector’s recipe. I know this was meant for RCMs but it does work with the Antistat too. I must say that the results were pretty good. At least as good as with the original fluid but with no residue at all! It does take more time to dry though, but that’s ok. All in all I’m really happy with it and, being a lot cheaper, I can just throw it away every 15 or so vinyls cleaned.
