    Jamie, I don't need to "defend myself" as "The Right One" record cleaning fluid sells as fast as I can make it, over 50% of my customers are return customers as well. My observations were an attempt to provide you with some information gleaned over years of research, so you did not damage your records, remind me not to bother in future. Still as they say no good deed goes unpunished

    Yesterday was a sad day.
    I have almost finished my bottle of "The right one" and I have run out of new inner sleeves.
    I must have cleaned close to 40 records yesterday.

    Due the problems in shipping cleaning fluid to France, I have ordered some Isopropyl and a litre of Ilfotol. I already have the distiller water, so I am going to have a go at making my own fluid. It had better work out ok, as I have bought 6 litres of Isopropyl.

    I just need to place an order for some more inner sleeves and the cleaning marathon can continue.

    Paul's fluid is superb.
    His eBay advert no longer includes shipping outside of the UK though. It was a pain last time, as the first carrier refused to ship it. Paul went out of his way to find someone who would though.

    My God Jamie that's a lot of effort ! My solution is homemade Isopropanol, AnalaR and Ilfotol in the following quantities - 200ml 800ml 15ml for records and 35ml 141ml and 5ml for CD/DVD etc in the Discwaher Hydrobath

    Just apply to record clean for at least a minute with brush whilst rotating allow to stand for a couple of mins then again with carbon brush and pad then dry it works for me !

    Nice to know I've been using your fluid the right way Paul.
    Hate to go back and do 300odd LPs again!

    1) If you are having to brush for 2 or three minutes, the wetness of the fluid is wrong and no matter how long you brush, you won't reach the bottom of the groove. The wetting agent has to be of a seeking type that causes capillary action to draw the fluid into the groove and soak the detritus trapped there.

    2) Soak time, it takes a maximum of 10 second for the capillary action to cause the fluid to get as far down the groove as it will get, after that, about 10 seconds soak time will loosen the crud as much as possible WITH EACH APPLICATION, it may be that it more than one go, but leaving the fluid longer makes no difference, once it's done all it can, it's done all it can, it becomes saturated and you need to use some more.

    3) Enzyme cleaners are detrimental to your records if not rinsed off and to your RCM, especially the point nozzle type, rinsed or not. I've lost count of the number of machines I've had to strip down and clean out because the growth many people have seen in the bottle with fluids such as L'Art du Son, occurs in the pipework of you RCM and when it dries out it leaves a black powdery residue that jams the machine. The best degreasant is Isopropanol anyway. It also kills mould and bacteria if mixed with water, so why would you need anything else?

    4) Ilfatol as a wetting agent. As a photographer, I used Ilfatol for years, but it's not anti static, that's why Ilford sell anti stat film wipes. Part of the formula has to be an anti stat, Oh and by the way don't use Kodak Photo-Flo if you can still get it as it contains products which are anti stat, but are also de-vinylising.

    Cheers
