Purchasing used records can sometimes be the only way to find that prized album you’ve been searching for, for years. But if the record's dusty what do you do? Leave it or look for another that may never turn up.
With record cleaning machines costing upwards of £300, surely there has to be an alternative? Enter the ‘Disco Antistat’. Forget the name, the looks and even the packaging, this is one of those products that really works, and to the best of our knowledge is the only cleaning method currently available that submerges a record in a bath of cleaning fluid.
The principle is simple, two discs with a 100mm diameter clamp each side of the records label, thus protecting it during cleaning, this then rests in a groove at the top of the rectangular cleaning bath, the bath is topped up with supplied cleaning fluid, the record is then rotated around its central axis. As the record passes through the bath, two sets of brushes clean each side of the album. Once you’re happy with the results simply remove the record and centre clamps, and place your clean album on the rack to dry. Because the cleaning solution contains wetting agent, records dry without smears. When cleaning is complete, pour your used cleaning fluid from the bath through a filtering funnel back into you cleaning fluid bottle for re-use.
Please note the Disco Antistat machine comes with 1 litre of cleaning fluid.
