How Do You Clean A Flexi Disc?


Godzilla

Recommended Posts

I've found a bunch of old flexis that I'm going to record onto the compy but they're covered in dust and muck. I'm a bit worried about using the old isopropil and water mix that I use for vinyl in case there's some kind of reaction. I suppose I could experiment on the most expendable one but I thought I'd check here first to see if anyone has any tips. Any ideas team?

..and before Pikey's Dog comes in, yes, I know - blowtorch and sandpaper :thumbsup:

seeing as they don't have labels, a bit of lukewarm water and washing up liquid should do, then just leave em flat to dry.

Have you tried this trev? Was just debating with Mrs G about whether the detergent might have an adverse effect.

Nope, I hav'nt but I really cant see a bit of liquid in some water doing 'em any harm. Have done it with normal vinyl on occaision, being careful to not touch the label, and they were fine. Just try one first, and if its ok, stick em in the sink!! :thumbsup:

Just done and the recording of Winston Churchill's funeral has come up a treat!

Did you know he helped plan it himself under the code name "Operation Hope Not" :shades:

What to do next - Cherry B or Chris Morris winding up Piers Morgan?
