Cleaning procedure, the handles protect the record and make it easy to hold and spin.
You will also need a record cleaning solution, a goat hair record brush, a sponge and a microfiber cloth.
TRY FIRST WITH A RECORD THAT HAS NO WORTH TO YOU
Name of parts
A • Handle
B • Silicon seal
C • Plexiglass disc
D • D-Ring seal
E • Bolt
2 • Brush both sides of the record with a carbon fiber brush. This will already remove a lot of dust.
3 • Rinse the record under a shower or tap, of lukewarm water. Spin or shake the record gently to get rid of excess water.
4 • Mix your preferred solution and put a small amount on the record or on a small dish to soak a goat hair brush. I recommend demineralized water with 'L'art du son' or simply ILFOTOL wetting agent.
5 • Wash for a few minutes ( per side ) with a clean goat hair brush that should be soaking wet with the lukewarm cleaning solution. Go around the record doing small circular patterns. If the solution looks dirty rinse your brush and do another round. Use clean solution for each record.
6 • Spin the record ( that's why it's called the SPINDLE SPINNER :) This will move water away from the label so that there is not too much water build-up remaining near the seal.
7 • Rinse with a clean sponge (That you reserve for this!) soaked with demineralized water. Squeeze the sponge and wipe the remaining water. Finish drying with microfiber cloth, the record should look dry.
8 • Keep the record in the SPINDLE SPINNER and let it sit for at least 30 mn on a clean table.
9 • Rinse the SPINDLE SPINNER, goat brush, sponge and micro fiber cloth and let them dry.
