    I got my moongels...I did a dip yesterday and it went well...I was thinking about detached diamonds however and it took away from the overall excitement of the experience.....
    I think I'm going to brush the stylus after every half side play and moongel after every 2 or 3 records....does this sound effective for proper stylus hygiene? I also run a small home business cleaning vinyl so all my vinyl is ultrasonic ally cleaned followed by a VPI 16.5 cleaning, Zerostatted and put in mofi sleeves.....my records are very clean so I think this method should suffice......maybe ME too.....
    I just don't want to "overkill" the process

    I don't use the Moongel on every side, usually on every record or even less. I too have a record cleaner and a nice brush, my records are clean before I play them.

    That's fake news, but just to be safe, don't have sex in front of the microwave.

    I think someone did mention using it on other things, but anyway, though I haven't used either one, I understand that they are at least slightly abrasive, so I would not use it on a stylus.

    As a matter of fact, I would not use anything that is somewhat solid like those products, not even an artist's kneaded eraser that I have heard some say they use, too much risk of damaging the cantilever
    or stylus itself.

    For stylus cleaning, I only use a soft camel hairs artists brush, brushing from back to forward after every six songs. For any debris caked on the stylus, I just moisten the brush with distilled water and clean
    as usual. It does an excellent job.

    That is your safest bet for sure.....I spent a considerable amount of time researching on line regarding ME and moongel.....I saw nothing that really dissuaded me from their use....I find with the moongel I feel most comfortable just slightly dabbing the top of the stylus ever so lightlh.....maybe after every two records....I brush with stylus brush after every side.....99.9 % of the posters seem to be comfortable with thier method......the only horror stories I read about are folks snagging thier srylus' with cloth or damage them with stylus guards....
