If it's truly vinyl, you might try applying an even coating of LockTite Wood
Glue to the entire vinyl surface (not the label or spindle hole) and then
let it dry overnight. Carefully peeling this off the next day, as a
complete, if floppy, negative of the record, will lift all debris from the
grooves - and, hopefully, the glue residue you have, now. This wood glue
will not adhere to pvc once it is dry. Yes, I saw this technique on
YouTube, but I have performed the trick, here, and it works better than a
Monk at cleaning vinyl discs. If anyone can gainsay this practice, I'm all
