    My vinyls are literally covered in dust and cat hair :lol: i've ignored it up until now but it just got too much for me today so i had ago at one or two with a duster and all it did was statically charge the vinyl so they picked up even more dust and cat hair :lol: please may one of you wise old chaps/ladies tell me the best way to deal with this irksome problem?

    someone posted in another thread that luke warm water with a couple of drops of fairy liquid then rinse with cold water, it sounds feasable to me, i was gonna try it this weekend.

    Yeah that was me - it works way better and is way cheaper than any specialist cleaning products

    I usually try not to get the centre paper wet as I don't want the glue to come off but doesn't really matter if you get a couple of splashes on there, they dry out OK...

    no soapy water dosn't work
    what you need is a razor, and slowly glide it in a straight line over the record, should get rid of the fluff and cat hair for you

    Soapy water followed by Ronson lighter fluid, its a degreaser and a great anti-static. Just make sure to leave them to dry properly before playing them.
