    So with no hope of success I tried the Scrubbing Bubbles on a Goodwill Aerosmith :" Get Your Wings" , Holy Cow, what a huge difference it made, now it didn't fix the years of wear and tear, but wow! a huge improvement in sound! I was floored, I have the Vynly Style brand of the Spin Clean, I chose it for the excellent rack it came with, but it doesn't clean like the SB, I'm having trouble finding suitable drying towels .

    Has any one tried a quick wipe with a Magic Eraser? I did it with an unplayable Carol King Tapestry lp. When I was done, I could actually use it. Of course you'll want the Magic Eraser to be wet and then dry the vinyl with a microfiber cloth. I don't recommend this cleaning method for good condition lps, but it is a way to salvage some of the poorer condition records.

    Magic Eraser should never touch your records. It is however useful for cleaning your stylus, but that's another thread.
