Afternoon chaps, need to clean up a load of old vinyl to sell and found this on ebay.

Looks pretty good but don't want to ruin anything so wondered what people thought or if anyone had found some good but relatively cheap alternatives please?

Thanks

Usually I'll just use alcohol and a soft brush, but I've tried the wood glue method twice with Elmer's Wood Glue. It works amazing well for getting up dust, but it seems when I have records that covered in filth, there are scratches as well. Be careful about splattering the glue near the label and also make sure you have a bit of paper or tab to lift the glue up. (The time the tab fell out was a massive headache getting the glue to lift off. Anyway...

Was literally just talking about this method with a mate, and then saw this. Nice one for posting the video
