The Finest NO-RINSE Fluid available for cleaning Vinyl Phonograph Recordings.

The Disc Doctor's QuickWash Record Cleaner is a blend of purified water and high purity, biodegradeable surfactants specially formulated for cleaning vinyl phonograph recordings with vacuum-assisted record cleaning machines. Our QuickWash solution can also be removed manually using high nap, pure cotton terry cloth or equivalent microfiber cloth.

The Disc Doctor's QuickWash Record Cleaner works best with 20-30 sec of light spreading using a back & forth motion followed by vacuum-assisted fluid removal. Highly effective removal of mold & mildew.

For many The Disc Doctor's QuickWash Solution will be all the record cleaner your vinyl record collection will ever need.

The audible value of using our "Miracle Record Cleaner" along with the extra effort required for a rinse versus our QuickWash solution is something that each user should evaluate for themselves.

For worst case situations a second scrubbing application of QuickWash Solution may be helpful but most often such discs are best cleaned with "The Disc Doctor's Miracle Record Cleaner".

NO MATTER
If it's a vinyl, shellac or diamond disc recording...
How well you've cared for your recordings...
How exacting your playback system...

 
Unless you've cleaned your records with The Disc Doctor's Miracle Record Cleaner and brushes you've yet to enjoy all the music your records have to offer!
 
EVERY RECORD IN YOUR COLLECTION SHOULD BE CLEANED BEFORE YOU PLAY IT AGAIN, AND EVERY RECORD ADDED TO YOUR COLLECTION SHOULD BE CLEANED BEFORE PLAYING.
 
Every record, even if thought to be cleaned, is soiled with a wide range of dirts and contaminants, including mold and mildew. Vinyl discs are also coated with sticky mould-release compounds. Contaminants between the groove and diamond stylus or steel needle cause mistracking and are abrasive resulting in unnecessary, excessive wearing of both record and stylus. By interfering with proper groove tracing, dirty records produce inaccurate, noisy sound.

A safe, effective, one-time cleaning solution has now been developed. Hundreds of pressings have been cleaned to complete satisfaction. In no case could more contaminants be removed from a properly cleaned record...if cleaned using the suggested procedure and with The Disc Doctor's Miracle Record Cleaner and Brushes, one cleaning is all a disc will ever need. Just keep it free of dust, fingerprints, and other contaminants and it won't need to be cleaned again. Dry brushing with a carbon fiber brush for vinyl or velvet duster for shellac, acetate and Diamond Discs is all the maintenance necessary.

 
The Disc Doctor's Miracle Record Cleaner is available in pint, quart, 1/2 gallon and gallon hdpe bottles; a concentrate is available for international delivery. We recommend using the Miracle Record Cleaner as a mixture of 2 parts MRC to 1 part fresh distilled or RO filtered water. The 4 oz. flip-cap dispenser shown above accompanies each bottle of Cleaner. Wet Cleaning Brushes are sold as singles or pairs & each brush includes an extra replaceable cleaning pad. Brushes are sized for 7", 10", 12" & 16" vinyl or shellac pressings with various label sizes. See price list for complete descriptions. Detailed Instructions are included.

The full color image below offers 3 different views of the authentic Disc Doctor's Miracle Record Brush. The Disc Doctor's Miracle Record Brush was the first & only applicator specifically designed to clean phonograph disc recordings.

The light weight ergonomic design is comfortable in the hand. The void in the base of the handle maximizes the amount of usable flat contact space with the disc surface while minimizing the amount of fluid required for safe, thorough & effective cleaning. Careful choice of fabric for the replaceable cleaning pad along with manual & visual screening for irregularities, affords a cleaning surface that maximizes the agitation of the cleaning solution insuring safe & thorough cleaning with a single application when used as directed.

 

 

The 2 black & white images below ARE NOT the Disc Doctor's Miracle Record Brush. The solid, heavy & overly wide base of this handle makes the brush harder to hold, less effective than the Disc Doctor's Wet Cleaning Brushes and requires 50% more fluid to be used safely.

The manufacturer of this brush claims the pad surface can be used either wet or dry. We have never identified a fabric which we would recommend as safe & effective for both wet & dry application to vinyl phonograph recordings.
