Cleaning vinyl records - update

Well my interest in collecting vinyl records has continued , I enjoy nothing more than sorting through crates of LP's in Junk shops, charity shops or more unusual places.
often these records can be quite dirty - dust, grease, mould and other  things.

I previously blogged on cleaning records, this post is a bit of an update and I have created a video of how I clean records. Sorry that there seems to be a bit of a flicker

Can't get along with the dent pullers at all! I can get them to hold together tightly using the technique you describe in the video but give them a slight shake and they fall apart. Don't fancy swirling them about in the water in case the same thing happens! :/

Sorry to hear that. I have 2 sets of dent pullers and I get an immovable bond 9/10 times with either

I take one puller and close the handles which cups the rubber suction. I then lay the record on this while holding it by the handle from below. I then place the other puller on top , pressing it down and close the handle on the second puller. typically at this point I cannot pull or slide either puller from the record, the suction is complete.

I have sometimes needed to moisten the edge of the suckers where they make contact
