Pre-Clean Your LPs with FIRSTrv
Everyone who owns vinyl records knows that they need to be maintained in a clean condition to sound their best and to preserve their fragile surfaces. Record cleaning solutions alone don't always remove the most stubborn sources of vinyl 'pollution,' such as fingerprints and mold-release compounds.
Record cleaning devices operate on a number of different theories and principles, but they all have one thing in common: they do not totally clean all the pollutants from record grooves, either. They can leave behind pollutants that prevent you from hearing all the music on the record. And they cause premature wear of the record and phono stylus.
Use FIRSTrv First
Before you use your favorite record cleaning solution, pre-clean your precious vinyl with FIRSTrv. FIRSTrv is Nitty Gritty's environmentally friendly propellant-free pre-cleaner for LPs, 45s, and more. Due to its high specific gravity and low surface tension, FIRSTrv flows into record grooves, dissolving mold-release compounds and fingerprints. It also helps reduce stylus friction and/or poor tracking.
Use with DVDs and CDs, Too
FIRSTrv is great for CDs and DVDs, too. Use FIRSTrv to remove fingerprints that can cause laser-reading errors which may degrade sonic and video performance.
Use With or Without a Record Cleaning Machine
You don't need to own a record cleaning machine to enjoy the benefits of FIRSTrv. Just place your vinyl record, CD, or DVD on a clean flat surface, apply liberally to the record cleaning applicator (not included), apply it to the record, and let dry. It's that easy. Or use FIRSTrv with your record cleaning machine and make it a part of your normal cleaning routine.
