Better than the others

After getting a record cleaning machine this year and trying several methods and fluids, as far as I can hear, no one-step process gets the record as clean and quiet as the DD fluid. It takes a little more time to clean a record, but the results are worth it. For myself, I place the record on a clean towel and scrub with a DD brush and fluid - lightly remove with plain Scott toilet paper (DD recommends this) Then, using some of that ultra pure water rinse (there are several) lightly scrub the record with a second DD brush and remove with the toilet paper. Then do one more rinse (I use the same rinse brush) and vacuum dry. I know it sounds a bit time consuming, but it only takes about 5 minutes and the results just kill the one-step methods recommended by the cleaning machine makers. Anyway - amazing stuff when used properly.
