    Default Record Cleaner

    Has GruvGlide record cleaner gotten more expensive? I swear it was only $20, it seems to be about $36.00 now. That isn't much more but I'm digitizing my collection and I'm going pretty quickly through these cans. Does anybody know where to get GruvGlide cheaper or a just-as-good alternative?

    Sometimes Amazon has it on sale, (I picked it up for $20 or $25, then went back to get more but it was up to $35) but yeah about $35 is the price I've seen it for lately unfortunately.

    Personallly, I just use a dry microfibre cloth.

    There's also a pretty clever way of doing it with wood glue.

    Thanks for the replies.The only other brand I've seen is one by Stanton. Does anyone have any experience with it?

    If you're cleaning frequently, why not get a Spinclean or one of those machines.

    make your own mix....distilled water (4 parts) / IPA (80%) (1 part) + drop dishwash or a wetting agent
    If they don’t want to see the light…..just make them feel the beat…..
