Cleaned Vinyl with Windex - now it crackles

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

 

just cleaned my brand new vinyl (bought from Amazon) with windex (the German equivalent to windex) and now it crackles quiet a lot. It had basically no crackling before (like a new vinyl should sound), now it sounds like one of my old ones that has visible scratches etc. When I put another new vinyl on my turntable --> no problems.

I've been cleaning records like this for a while (new and old), so far no problems. 

 

Any ideas why, and more specifically, any ideas how I can fix it?

 

Thanks for help!

Have you tried putting the record and, this is important, and your head in a gas oven?
