  • The
    Spin-Clean Record Washer
    is a little yellow unit that has been
    around since the ’70s, but it remains one of the most
    straightforward and effective ways to wring the dirt and grime from
    the grooves of your records.
  • Right now, the Spin-Clean Record Washer is discounted
    to $60 on Amazon, which is currently $20 off its normal price as a
    Cyber
    Monday deal
    .

People are into vinyl again. Whether it’s due to a desire to
feel closer to their music, or just to rebel against the rise of
lesser-sounding streaming services,
sales keep going up
. That, in all likelihood, means that there
are plenty of people who are getting their first taste of the
format and are just now learning how to properly care for their
records.

And that means cleaning. The downside of owning physical music
is that it’s physical, something that gets worn down by its
environment over time. To keep it sounding its best, it needs a
good scrubbing every so often.

You can do this by hand, but it’s not hard to see how that could
get tedious with a larger collection, especially if you’ve bought
used. Thankfully, there are dedicated cleaning machines that’ll
take most of the work off of your hands.

The easiest of these to recommend is also one of the oldest: the

Spin-Clean
. The little yellow unit has been around since the
’70s, but it remains one of the most straightforward and effective
ways to wring the dirt and grime from the grooves of your records.
Since more elaborate solutions can cost hundreds, the $70 kit is
also one of the most affordable.

The Spin-Clean still requires a bit of manual labor to work, but
all in all, it’s simple to use. Everything is done by hand: You
just mix up its cleaning solution, toss it in the box, insert the
record between the included brushes, and rotate the record by its
edge.

Depending on how dirty it is, it should only take three to five
spins to get a good wash, since the whole setup cleans both sides
of the vinyl at once. You get a couple of cloths to dry it from
there. (Though you might want to air dry instead.) One batch of
washer fluid should last you a couple dozen records, but if you run
out,
replacement bottles
start at $8.

You do pay a little bit for the name and the build quality here,
but there’s a reason this thing has endured for decades: It works.
Its 4.4 rating on Amazon after 850 user reviews should reflect
that. If you’re willing to put in a little more work to keep your
vinyl in good shape, the Spin-Clean is well worth a look.
