    Partially true, which is why the dH2O rinse is critical. That said, it is impossible to avoid the fact that a molecular layer of detergent remains on the record surface, regardless of the extent of rinsing (unless you rinse with something non-polar). Which is why the choice of detergent actually does matter.

    Either charcoal filtered tap or bottled spring water. Not critical, but certainly better than distilled for optimal enzymatic activity (given the short incubation times and the sub-optimal temperature and pHs typically employed in record cleaning protocols).
