No single system has been able to rid a record's surface of film, grease, residue, and dust while it eliminated static electricity and left a purified vinyl disc until now. The improvement in sound that a Nitty Gritty cleaning makes is so dramatic that the benefit of upgrading one component (of a hi-fi system) is less significant by comparison.
The first step of the Nitty Gritty record cleaning process is to scrub the record with a special fluid wash. Purifier 2 is the stronger cleaner, capable of overpowering the most stubborn residue or grease. It contains a degreaser, a static neutralizer, a mild detergent, and surfactant.
Purifier 2 has a remarkably low 6 parts solid per million dissolved solids, making it residue free. Purifier 1 is recommended for 78 RPM records as it contains no alcohol. Both Purifiers are formulated from chemicals that are totally biodegradable.
The Nitty Gritty VAC-SWEEP brush has thousands of microscopic fibers that gently scrub the record's grooves. Its short bristles make the most efficient use of Nitty Gritty's special cleaning fluids, and its softness protects a record from abrasion.
The second step of the Nitty Gritty record cleaning process is to vacuum the scrubbed record. Possibly the most unique part of the Nitty Gritty system is the "hemi cylindrical lip interface. Through these fiber-covered lips, the vacuum motor suctions a dry path across the entire grooved surface of the record. The shape of the lips serves to minimize contact with the record as well as maximize the velocity of the air, utilizing the "venturi effect." The VAC-SWEEP (fibrous cloth liner) provides additional scrubbing while it cushions contact with the record, protecting the fragile record grooves.
The record is supported on the rotating platform which is designed to eliminate any contact with the record grooves. This removes the possibility of recontaminating the first side cleaned, while cleaning the second.
