The instructions insert that comes with the record cleaner states that the way to clean the applicator wands is to place them in a dish of warm water with a drop or 2 of liquid dish soap and then rinse. This seems strange to me. Wouldn’t the dish soap leave a residue in the wands? I am concerned that it would transfer to my valuable lps and screw them up in some way. What’s your answer on this issue?
The answer to your question is the following: By calling for only a drop or two of dish-washing soap in a bowl of water, we are ensuring a very dilute solution in which to soak and loosen the offending contamination from the applicators. When the process is completed with a complete rinse, no measurable amount of soap is retained by the applicators, and they can continue to be used successfully again.
Thank you for your query, Walter Davies
