Not to open a can of worms, but I recently started a small LP collection
and I have been researching on the internet for the best way to clean LPs.
I've seen so many different methods and opinions on cleaning them that I am
unsure what method is best. Is there any sort of consensus that Tergitol
15-s-7 is the best way to clean LPs? If so, are there vendors who will
sell it to someone without a business license? I've seen some people use
original Dawn as a surfactant. If someone uses a vacuum system, would using
Dawn be an issue since the vacuum should suck up all of the liquid and not
Mr. Goldman mentioned mould-release compounds. Will Tergitol or Dawn
remove these? If I play a new LP without wet cleaning it first with some
kind of surfactant, will it damage the stylus or permanently affect the
LP's sound quality? FWIW, I'm running a budget setup (meaning less than
$500). Any advice would be appreciated.
