The Wash-IT cleaning formula was developed exclusively by Pro-Ject Audio Systems for use with the VC-S record cleaning machine.
Wash-IT does not contain alcohol, which can harm record surfaces. Instead it contains only high-purity components, which are 100% eco-friendly, non-toxic and non-flammable. It's also designed to evaporate without leaving any residue on the record surface after drying.
Wash-IT is available in 100ml, 250ml, 500ml and 1L bottles (1 litre of fluid can clean around 1500 records).
Wash it concentrate must be diluted (recommended ratio is between 1:10 and 1:20) with demineralised or distilled water before use. Never use tap water, because minerals in tap water will leave white traces on the record surface; these will affect the sound quality by adding unwanted noise and may damage the recording.
The cleaning efficiency of Wash-IT can be significantly improved by applying a small amount of force with the cleaning brush. Even more improvement can be achieved by using a slightly warmed-up Wash-IT solution.
Wash-IT can be safely warmed in a microwave oven. When using warmed-up Wash-IT, use a dilution ratio of 1:20 and aim for a liquid temperature of around 40º C. We cannot accept liability for any accidents that may occur when experimenting with warmed Wash-IT solution.
Wash-IT should be stored away from direct sunlight, in a space ideally between 10 and 25º C.
