How do I remove fingerprints from records?

Power-Cleaning a Vinyl RecordWhat is the best product to remove fingerprints from records? I’d be using it as a spot cleaner before I would put it through a record cleaning machine. Thanks, E.

Fingerprints contain lipid oils and traces of fats that can create a micro-etching effect on the record surface (if left for long periods of time).  With your cleaning regimen, I recommend the use of LAST Power Cleaner prior to the use of the record cleaning machine.  The combination should provide a chemically clean surface at the end of the process.

Good Luck with the project!
