One of the greatest inventions of the 20th Century has finally made it to our fine land.
The Spin-Clean Record Cleaner started up production way back in 1968, and has become world famous as very possibly the most cost-effective of all the great record cleaners.
It is possible to spend thousands on complex machinery to clean your precious vinyl, but the Spin-Clean sets the consumer back a mere $160.
It requires no power or installation: everything is done manually. Its “unique washer fluid encapsulates the dirt and keeps it suspended in the system instead of evaporating or redepositing it back on to your record.” Or so says the press release, but there’s good evidence that it does just that.
How does it work? You spin your vinyl record two or three times in the Spin-Clean contraption, remove and wipe dry with a lint-free cloth. What does it get rid of? Static, fingerprints, grease, smoke, film and dirt. No, it can’t unwarp a record you’ve left out in the sun, or miraculously unscratch that munted DJ vinyl.
The Spin-Clean system is available at: Turned-On Audio and Shore HiFi, Auckland; The Listening Post and Top HiFi in Christchurch.
