Cleaned Vinyl with Windex - now it crackles

Someone suggested he burn his head in a gas oven, but why not gas himself instead?  I agree it wasn't in very good taste to bring up the nazis, though.  

Nobody suggested he burn his head. Gas was the correct assumption, but to Godwin's Law me? Lame. It was a kill yourself joke, not a Nazi joke.

I usually bulk clean my records in my dishwasher. I can fit almost 30 LPs on the bottom and about 10 7-inchers on the top. If you have a dishwasher yourself, I highly recommend it. Just make sure you fill the detergent compartment with premium gasoline.

Cleaner Dan

 

Well, Cleaner Dan's a major player in the cleaning scene
He goes to the supermarket drinks bleach and gets clean
He's gonna clean the floor
He stops with his cleanup puts his eyes to the floor
And says "I cleaned mine but I want more"
Well, Cleaner Dan's a major player in the cleaning scene
He goes to the bedroom shower stinks and gets clean
He goes to the windows, fires his windex in the sky
And says, "God if I have to clean I will do it right"
Well, Cleaner Dan's a major player in the cleaning scene
He goes the the bedroom shower stinks and gets clean
I didn't move to the records, the records moved to me
And I clean them desperately
Can't clean it, not even with windex
Can't get that record flipped over
Standing smelling like ass
Cleaning nothing
You know we need liquid soap to clean
Whenever you are mopping you're just moving the ground
Whenever you are dusting you're just moving it around
Where ever you clean you're just looking down
Well, Cleaner Dan's a major player in the cleaning scene
He goes to the bedroom shower stinks and gets clean
He's gonna clean the flooooor
He stops with his cleanup puts his eyes to the floor
And says "I cleaned mine but I want more"

Wow. So glad I found this post. A few replies in and I was pretty much laughing out loud at work. It's been a rough night, now I feel reinvigorated. I find it hard to believe this was the first record that Windex ruined for the OP. Been doing this for a while? Really? I guess maybe they changed the formula on you?

 

BTW. Where are all the cat memes?

I just want to take a moment to appreciate the fact that the OP uploaded a generic "blank avatar" avatar instead of using the default one that the boards assign.

 

 

On a serious note, I didn't come up with that by myself, my local vinyl store recommended it, seen them do it as well, and I've been cleaning my vinyl (old and new) with Windex for 2 years now, never had any complaints, they actually always sound(ed) great afterwards. 

 

Soo idk what happened on this one, must've used a different brand than all the other times. Either way, can I get any honest ideas on what to do with this one, I suppose there's residue on it, any careful way to remove that?

OP took all that razzing and followed it up with a great lighthearted response. Well done, welcome to VC good friend

To answer your question: the damage is possibly already done, but the best you can do is clean it properly with record cleaning fluid and and remove whatever Windex residue is left on there.

This thing turned around like no other thread ever.  Is it fucking opposite day or something?

Nah, that's just what happens when you're a good sport with thick skin.  Unfortunately it's the internet so you just never really see it.
