I'm a bit confused. Are you referring to vinyl &/or lacquer discs that are contaminated with oils/greases, including the waxy residue that is often found on the surface of lacquer discs. The waxy residue comes from decomposition of the castor oil used as a binder in the lacquer formulation.
If so there are safe approaches to removing these contaminants. Please contact us off list for further information.
