How to clean a vinyl record with wood glue


Love playing old records? Some people love the hiss and the crackle of dust that sits in the grooves, it adds nostaglia and feels real compared to most of our over compressed files that we listen to on pocket devices these days. But for those who would prefer to listen to their favourite albums in pristine condition there’s a simple solution: Wood glue.

Watch this video from a blogger who found that coating wood glue on your vinyl removes every speck of dust and changes the clarity of your favourite records back to when you bought them.

Make sure the edges are covered with enough thickness of the glue though, or you’ll be trying to get small pieces of segmented glue out of the lead in/lead out grooves.
