Microfiber Applicators – Package of 10

October 2019 Update – Our applicator machine is working again, and customers may now order multiple packages.

Our custom hand-made applicators are used to dust, clean and preserve vinyl records (LPs). But they also work on shellac records (78 rpms) and polycarbonate records (45 rpms).

When used dry, they pick up dust and dirt particles, as well as pressing residue from the factory. They hold record cleaning solution as well as record preservative solution. Our kits come with multiple applicators, which can be cleaned if they get dirty. But sometimes it’s handy to have some spare applicators on hand.

Applicators are made with white Swiss velvet. The white color allows you to easily see the level of dirt being pulled off the record.

These applicators can also be used with vacuum-operated record cleaning machines. When cleaning on a turntable, be sure to use a light touch. If you press too hard, it can place high loads on a turntable bearing. The record will be fine but your turntable may suffer.

A handy tip: when using a dry applicator to dust a record, there is a chance in dry weather that a static charge will build up on the surface. We recommend you put 1 drop of water on the applicator first to avoid this.

Note: Our applicators work with other brands of record cleaning fluids just as well.
