What I do to clean 78 RPM records is;
I use a flat paint pad with very fine 1/8 inch bristles. Imix a solution
of Ajax dish soap, I think most any dish soap wouldwork, ( About a
silver dollars size) in the bottom of a 1 cup measuring cup.I fill the
cup ¾ full with luke warm water. It is important to use just warm water,
do not use water hotter than room temperature. Than I use aflat pan,
cookie pan, etc. I put a new paper towel in the bottom foreach record.
I use a flat roasting dish, or other square dish, squarepreferably, and
fill it with ¼ inch of solution, to dip the painting pad in.You than squeeze
off the extra liquid on the edge of the pan. I run the paintpad around the
record, being careful not to get cleaning solution on label.3 times one
direction, 2 times in the other direction. Than I rinse withwater from the
tap, also adjusted for room temperature. I rotate the recordunder the
running water taking care not to get the label wet. The sametime I use
a 2 inch paint brush to wipe the soap off the record. I thanuse a new
paper towel under each record. I try to keep the stack under10, or 11
records. I take 2 boxes on the table, medium shipping boxeswork good.
And suspend a ¼ inch brazing rod between them. I thread therecords
on the rod between the 2 boxes making sure not to let thegroves touch.
Let dry overnight.
I have cleaned over 500, 78 RPM records, a few 33s, and 45sthis way
and not have a problem with any.
