    Vinyl (records) cleaning fluid. 13th Jul 18 at 8:08 PM
    Sorry if this is not the right/best part of the forum.

    I use my own diy cleaning fluid to clean my vinyl

    1part 90/91% isopropyl alcohol
    4 parts distilled water
    Few drops of a wetting agent.

    The issue I have is the wetting agent.

    Most forums/sites I've looked, both here and in the US suggest using kodak photo flo, or, clear and unscented (anti bacterial if poss) washing up liquid.

    I generally use the 'eco friendly' clear unscented stuff from the local supermarket, but I've been thinking recently about hand sanitiser.

    Anyone here make their own vinyl cleaning fluid who can discuss the pro's / con's of using hand sanitiser as the wetting agent?
    To equate judgement and wisdom with occupation is at best . . . insulting.
