"My record collection is valuable to me, so I was hesitant to use fluids and brushes on any of them. But recently, I scored a bunch of records at a garage sale, so I took a few of them I would never listen to for testing. After cleaning a few B sides, I have no hesitation in using the cleaner on any of my valuable vinyl collections."

"...We highly recommend GrooveWasher as our go-to record cleaning solution. When cleaning vinyl records by hand, this meticulously designed record cleaning fluid goes to work quickly on vinyl records and leaves no discernible residue behind.

Unlike some record cleaners, GrooveWasher G2 fluid achieves excellent results without the use of high-alcohol content. Gentle, but highly effective."

How to 'GrooveWasher', The Notes On Vinyl Way

Published By Robert Halvari

"The easiest way to see the difference a Groovewasher makes is by using records that have a significant built up of dust and static. Following the method above is all well and good and will get good enough results, but you will likely want to experiment at least a little bit to make it your own.

This is an incredibly effective solution and, being linked to the Discwasher, is in itself an industry-standard cleaning solution, and so I do not doubt that it can deal with whatever is thrown at it, and deal with it with devastating effect. Some people online have even chosen to use records that are so old and have been kept in so dank an environment as to accrue mold, using the Groovewasher to rid said records of the spores on their surfaces almost entirely."

Sound Matters' Marc Henshall talks Vinyl Record Cleaning, Discwasher Roots, Rates Mondo Kit 5 Stars

By Marc Henshall

"Regular readers will know why we’ve recommended GrooveWasher as our go-to manual record cleaning solution for over four years now. Quite frankly, in our opinion, it’s the best product on the market in this category. GrooveWasher G2 cleaning fluid is safe, highly effective, and affordable. 

Ultrasonic record cleaners and vacuum-based record cleaning machines are terrific investments, but not everyone has deep enough pockets for such devices. A GrooveWasher cleaning kit, on the other hand, starts at $9.95 for a starter pack and scales up from there until you reach the flagship Mondo kit, which is the topic of today’s review. Put simply; there’s a GrooveWasher kit to suit all record collections great and small."

"What makes GrooveWasher superior to these other similar products is that it is a more complete system that includes tools and methods for cleaning not only your disc but also your stylus. Also, none of the others mentioned include a mat for cleaning or separate specialized cleaning fluids for the record and stylus. Judging by their website, GrooveWasher offers more support (as well as a 30-day return period) than similarly designed options."
