    Default Before after picture!




    Just thought I'd share a photo of the cleaning fluid before and after a session. Obviously the vinyl playback was vastly improved following a good scrub and Hoover. Turned some charity shop no hopers into near minters.

    Cheers

    Have you applied the taste test yet? That's the ultimate! Try a wee sip of each one...

    Funnily enough I cleaned out my Okki Nokki machine yesterday and marvelled, if that's the right word, at the filthy fluid that came out Yours looks not too bad by comparison.

    I've examined my dirty water as well, hard to believe all that was on your records and you were dragging a needle through it. Wash the same records again, and it won't be nearly as dirty, but it will still be dirty. Through 3 or 4 washes!
