Mark Steckler from Rockaway Records, Los Angeles, and this is how to clean your old records. You can use a Discwasher, or you can use ammonia-free glass cleaner, and a soft, lintless cloth. This is the standard technology, 35 years old, it's called Discwasher, and Dr. Bruce Meyer invented it. It's really cool. It comes with a little bit of liquid on here. Spray a little bit on there, push start, there's an arrow on it. Just put a little bit of pressure on it. The turntable's moving as you're doing this. And, it should come up clean. Now, these work great, but they're about 20 bucks. What we use here is ammonia-free glass cleaner. It's about four bucks, it lasts a long time, we use it on everything here. We use this every day, several thousand times a week. And, all you got to do, give it a little shake, spray it on the record. You can spray it on the label, doesn't matter, it'll dry off. Using a nice, soft cloth, lint free, clean, just want to wipe it off, going with the grooves. There you go, you have a clean record. There you go, it's clean. Mark Steckler from Rockaway Records, Los Angeles, and that was cleaning old records.
