Stereophile "Recommended" Component
Use LAST Power Cleaner first. Use it as soon you take a new LP out of its sleeve. Power Cleaner is specifically designed to remove pressing residues and contaminants left over from the manufacturing process. These sticky residues are tightly bound to the groove wall and attract and hold dirt and debris that cannot be removed by the usual water or water / alcohol mix record cleaner.
"Just Three Drops" Does It
"JE found just three drops sufficient to remove dirt, dust, and grime from garage sale records," reports the "2005 Recommended Components" listing in the April 2005 issue of Stereophile, which also calls Power Cleaner "a worthwhile companion to LAST's wonderful Record Preservative."
Easy to use and apply, Power Cleaner is safe for vinyl LPs as well as 78s. Just one cleaning with LAST Power Cleaner results in a record surface that is pristinely clean.
