CG makes an excellent substitute for you supplied RCM fluid, You should get even better cleaning results!
Our fluid is fantastic for cleaning glass, TV / Laptop and tablet screens, camera lenses, glasses, gloss furniture and more around the home - try it! you will be impressed - best of all It does not leave streaks or residue! Its not suitable for wood or painted surfaces though.
After cleaning don't put the record back into a dirty sleeve! - Replace old inner sleeves with new ones where possible.
When cleaning 7"s simply scrunch or fold the cloth to make a smaller wiping surface.
Always try to avoid spraying the center label!
Allow fluid to sit on record for a minute or two before wiping when cleaning badly soiled records.
The dirtier the record, the more fluid you should use, just a small amount of dust only requires a slightly dampened cloth.

Clear Groove Advanced Record Cleaning Fluid
Highest Grade Isopropanol
Non Ionic Surficant*
*a special non toxic surficant unique to Clear Groove
For VINYL only - No suitable for cleaning delicate 78's / shellac or acetate discs
Ensuring we use only the purest, highest grade ingredients in the correct concentration decreases the risk of any potential negative reaction, leaching or residue left behind. Always use as instructed.
At the end of the day its down to the consumer to decide but please be aware of mis-information, myth and marketing (of which there is plenty on the internet) that might convince you to buy a 'safer' product or use different methods that might infact be less effective and/or more likely to cause damage.
All our products are thoroughly researched, tried & tested and the result of years of experience - Remember not all record cleaning fluids are the same!
Yes Clear Groove Advanced Record Cleaner does contain alcohol (isopropanol form)
Despite what some might claim there is absolutely NO evidence of alcohol (especially diluted premium grade ) from causing a deteiriation in sound on vinyl.
We do offer an alcohol free alternative for those that would prefer a more natural approach.
Ensure all the dirt thats worked out of the grooves is wiped away thoroughly - a second spray and good buffing will usually surfice. Yo dont want to just move dirt around, You want it taken off the record surface.
If your getting worse sound or surface noise than before cleaning you will need to perform a second clean to remove loosened particles.
Clear Groove is not recommended for use
on shellac records / 78's.
