    I've been seeing posts about this record cleaning fluid pop up on Facebook. Just wondering if anybody has tried it (the claims seem a bit over the top to me). Thanks!

    Just bought some off E-bay. Will let you know how it works compared to my Down With Dirty Concentrate I have been using with my Okki Nokki RCM.

    I'm curious about this too. The reviews seem to be overwhelmingly positive.

    It's seems, (price wise) worth trying. I'll probably get a bottle for my DIY Ultrasonic Record Cleaner. I have a few extra nasty, (dirty), albums set aside for it.

    I got some about a year ago. Works very well with my Squeaky Clean RCM. It does a particularly good job getting mold off of some pretty grungy records I was given last year. I don't have any complaints with it: it works well and doesn't cost a fortune.

    And it smells nice to boot.

    Just ordered some. There's an 8 oz bottle selling for 12.95 with a "make offer". I offered 12, and got it.

    I suspect you might get it for even less.

    It can work very well, but can't pull the trigger without knowing what's in it.

    Hi , if you look on Ebay , you can read all the reviews it has. And you can check out The Groovinator Group on Facebook too and you will see a bunch of reviews too and they will answer any questions you have also :)

    Great point... I use the AI lineup and besides the fact that it works great the specs are readily available.

    It is harmless. It contains no alcohol or enzymes and just contains a mild soap , flocculant and wetting agent. It is concentrated and it will last an extremely long time :)

    Welcome, and thanks for offering answers.

    It might be beneficial if you seek becoming a paid advertiser here , your product would get exposer in the banners.

    And it could curb any member with an axe to grind to get you banned. I hate to see that.

    Does this solution require a distilled rinse after the scrubbing and vacuuming?

    If you add 10 drops to 16oz of distilled water , spray it on the vinyl , then agitate , wipe off with a wet lint free cloth , then spray with distilled water only and run it through your vac. That is what most vac users do with The Groovinator. You can tweak the steps if you like , but it is good to run your vac as a last step with just distilled water. You will be pleased with the results. Thanks. Tim Hitchcock
