On January 7, 2021, a second State of Emergency was declared in Tokyo, Kanagawa, Chiba, and Saitama prefectures, followed by Osaka, Hyogo, Kyoto, Aichi, Gifu, Fukuoka, and Tochigi prefectures on January 13. The onslaught of the coronavirus is not expected to abate in 2021. Restaurants are being asked to shorten their hours to 8:00 p.m., and events are being cancelled one after another. I've also lost all my DJ plans for January. No time!!!! So now that the number of infected people is under control and the State of Emergency has been lifted, I'd like to introduce some cleaner products to help you make the most of your time at home so that you don't have to DJ with dusty records and equipment when you're ready to DJ!
■ Dry record cleaner
This is the most standard cleaner with a dry sponge. Gently wipe it along the grooves of the record to remove dust and dirt from the record.
■ Adhesive Type
It is an item that uses an adhesive roller to remove a lot of dust in the same way that you use a roller to clean your house! If the adhesive part of the roller weakens, you can wash it with water and use it over and over again, which is what I'm really interested in right now!
■ Wet record cleaner（Record Cleaning Fluid）
This is a liquid type, and the cleaner is dipped into the cleaning solution.
Compared to tracing with a dry record cleaner, you can feel that the dirt has been removed in a big way!
■ Record Cleaning Spray
This record cleaning spray is actually sprayed on the record and wiped off with a dry record cleaner or cloth to remove dust and reduce static electricity on the record.
This can reduce mold. In an apartment where you live alone, even if you are careful, you may find mold in various places...
■ Label protector
It covers the record label from both sides to protect your important record labels from moisture. You can even use it to wash your records with water and detergent! ※However, when cleaning records, please be very careful not to scratch or damage them, and do so at your own risk!
■ Stylus Cleaner
It is recommended that you take care of not only your records but also your record needles! This will improve the sound and most importantly, you’ll want to make it last as long as possible because replacement needles are expensive!
There is also information that if you put wood glue on the surface of the record and let it dry, then peel it off, it will remove a lot of dirt. However, this should be done at your own risk. During the period of self-restraint, why don't you start maintaining your vinyl records to enjoy music with better sound⁉?
