Of course, at some point I "reasoned" that the laundry detergents, dish soaps, etc., contain the SOTA enzymes, surfactants, wetting agents, detergents, etc., and I've tried a number of them, including several "detergents" made for dishwashers. And they do seem to get the records "clean", all right..

But so far there seem to be "other factors" at work here.  I wish I had a nice stereo microscope so I could look at all sorts of stuff, like my stylus, and my records, after cleaning them.  Meanwhile, in the absence of any "hard evidence", I can only say it seems "as if" either something gets removed that should not have, or something gets left behind that should not have.  I can think of no better word than "dried up" to describe the sound of the detergent-washed LPs I have listened to.  And, yes, I've tried "OxyClean", too.

But I was just thinking about trying "Dawn" detergent, which is used by a lot of the Serious Car Nerds on their "show" paint jobs.

I'll let you know...

Best regards,
Paul S
