    Default Rcm cleaning with a moth - what bits are best?

    Hi chaps.

    I've recently got a moth RCM and wondered if anyone can recommend the best in the following:

    Cleaning solution - always heard 'the right one' to be the best but that's now unavailable, what's the next best and where to buy?

    Felt strips - where is the best place to buy? Ebay or other ones? Should these stick to the inside if the tube too?

    Inner sleeves.. Currently using audio works which seem nice and good quality.

    Outer sleeves, which ones are the best? And which ones are second best?

    Any suggestions would be great

    Many thanks
    Jo

    The right one fluid is being sold by MCRU now. I've always outer covers from Covers 33. They're a good fit and last well - don't go yellow either. Last inner sleeves I bought were from Analogue Seduction - unbranded but good fit - went inside original inner sleeve if needed. Have fun hoovering

    Hi Kevin.. Thanks.

    I can't find the fluid on there, has it been rebranded?

    BTW, Have you used the moth fluid?

    Hello Josie. I think it's sold as their own brand. I've never used the Moth fluid.

    I have some IPA and distilled water.. Also have some kodak stuff, but it's out of date though.

    If its not by much it will be ok if its been stored ok. Stuff i use isnt kodak. They say kodak one has something else in it. Heard of folk using it with no probs tho. Im happy with my mix, and been using it a long time. An anti static gun is another good purchase if you dont have one

    if you want to make your own i can recommend using triton x 5% added to distilled water,its the same as tergitol used here, https://www.nedcc.org/audio-preservation/cleaning-discs

    i have tried ready made fluids in the past and honestly this is without doubt the best ive used to date,the results are far better and you can make litres of the stuff very cheaply,the triton x will last you years!

    Hmm.. That sounds interesting. So it's just that and distilled water?
