TTVJAudio Vinyl Zyme is the finest record cleaning solution we have come across.
After using this cleaner for the last 10+ years and trying many others, I am convinced this is the one to use. Pops and ticks have disappeared from albums cleaned by other cleaners first. A must buy for the serious collector. An alcohol free cleaner that contains natural enzymes. These enzymes break down the protein/carbohydrate substrate where mold and mildew attach themselves to the walls of your record groove. These are the pops and ticks you hear. One cleaning with TTVJ Vinyl Zyme Gold and you will be sold forever on this product. I know I am!!!
Use the whole 2 oz. bottle of concentrate mixed with 1 gallon of distilled water to make a gallon of Extra Stength Vinyl Zyme for records that are getting their first cleaning or are pretty dirty. This is what I use on all of my records for their first Vinyl Zyme cleaning.
OR mix 1/2oz. of the concentrate with a gallon of distilled water and get 1 gallon of Regular Strength Vinyl Zyme. This is what I use to keep my records clean after a cleaning with the Extra Strength. Or better put, this is your maintenance cleaner.
Just spray 6-10 squirts on your album, spread it around your album evenly with a soft brush (no scrubbing needed)
let it sit for 30 seconds to 1 minute.
2-3 revolutions with the record cleaning brush
3 rotations with the vacuum on the record and...
Walla, your record is as good as it is ever going to be.
And of course we highly recommend out TTVJ Inner Sleeves to put your newly cleaned record in. Don't want to give it a bath and put it back in a dirty sleeve do you?
From one of our many customers...
Since I bought Vinylzyme Gold from you, I have literally thrown away unopened bottles of other brand cleaners. Knowing that none of them would be able to match Vinylzyme.
Yesterday I cleaned Best of The Monkees, and For Sale by the Beatles from 1964.
Both records were given a double cleaning on my RCM, brush in Vinylzyme let it soak for 6 minutes, vacuum off, new dose of Vinylzyme again a 6 minutes soak. All in all 24 minutes per LP. With The Beatles I expected some more than average clicks and pops, but when I dropped the needle in the run in groove it was totally silent!
