Top Record Cleaning Tools Every Vinyl Enthusiast Should Own | Sound Matters

By Marc Henshall

"...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."

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

"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."
