    Add to this 0.5 to 1% by volume Ilford Ilfotol wetting agent (do not use older recipes such as Kodak Photoflo as the additives could leave a residue).

    Personally, I'd avoid using washing up liquid as it contains large amounts of salt but a little (as in a few drops per litre) may be ok.
    Yes....I have had a RCM for 15 years and the has been my stanby formula

    I see no need for fancy concoctions. I use something similar to this formula and no rinsing on my Okki Nokki. I have a Zerostat but never use it. I use a paint pad for cleaning the record. Some front ends seem to be much less forgiving to surface noise than others.

    Many 'recipes' for record cleaning solution seem to be IPA based. However, I've been using a 50:50 mix of purified water and bio-ethanol with 10ml of Ilfotol in 1 litre. You can get the bio-ethanol from any DIY store - its used as a fuel for these fancy household fires - and it's pretty cheap.

    Anyrate, it seems to work really well and nothing has disolved yet!! I'm sure I read somewhere that it's pretty much the same mix as recommended by Kieth Monks. I did also use a rinse of purified water for a while, but now I don't bother.
