How to Clean Vinyl Records : Drying Vinyl Records
So now you’ve cleaned your record, but your
record is still a little damp. And you don’t want to put it away while it’s still damp
for a plethora of reasons that I’m going to get into in just a moment. So you grab another
little piece, maybe you just flip it over if you have something thick enough that the
cleaner didn’t go all the way through, or you can grab another part of your medium or
even another rag and just run it over another time to make sure the record is clean. And
it’s really just, you just do it as many times as you need to. When you’re cleaning it, you
rub it until it’s clean. I can see there’s actually a little spot. I would do this again.
And when you’re drying it, you rub it until it’s dry. This guy dried pretty quickly. But
you really want to make sure it’s dry before you put it away. And, if you dry it and you
find it’s still dry, if you used a lot of cleaner or there’s a lot of moisture in the
room, just not drying that quickly, you can leave it out. But if you’re leaving it out,
leave it on something that’s clean. You can put your record down; you get it dirty all
over again. If something blows onto it, you’re going to have to do it all over again.
