    Hi Andy,

    Sorry I did not see this, I'm subsribed to the thread but did not get a notification. The answer is it all depends on how much you use on a record and what method you use. With a vacuum RCM 500ml has cleaned about 60 records, but for really dirty ones maybe 40 and of course hand cleaning is more variable.

    Hi Paul

    I am about half way through my supply of The Right One fluid and thought it was long past high time I asked you for your recommended technique! I don't have a record cleaning machine - I just use the little spreader brush you supplied and a microfibre cloth. I get variable results and figure I must be doing something wrong sometimes.

    Assume I have used a carbon fibre brush to get all the dust off a disc, how do I then go about thoroughly cleaning it with your fluid? Do I soak the vinyl and leave it for a while? Or do I use a tiny amount of fluid and dry it off right away? Should I expect to hear bad crackling after cleaning and just expect my stylus to clear out the grooves over 2 or 3 plays? Or is that a sign I am cleaning incorrectly?

    All advice gratefully received.

    Hi Sean

    Coat the record evenly so it's wet but not flooded. Leave for 20-30 seconds, dry with the microfibre cloth. It's good but will be better with an RCM. You will remove a lot of the crackle if it's from dirt, but not if it's from damage to the groove

    Cheers
