Thread Name: Record remains misty after cleaning?
Subject: RE: Record remains misty after cleaning?
I thought it would be the material at first too, but only one side is misty even though I cleaned both sides the same way. The only explanation so far that would explain why one side does and one doesn't was #'s supposition that it was left out in the sun with that side up. That seems somewhat unlikely to me since it was in its sleeve when I got it, but it also makes a little more sense since the misty side is the better one.

On a positive note, I've been leaving it in a dark room with the misty side face-down on a record player and it *appears* to be slowly becoming less misty. Last night before I went to bed I got my D4 Discwasher set and applied the fluid very liberally to the "washer pad" and repeated the cleaning several times. It remained misty after drying.

One thing I originally may not have included is that it doesn't look misty when wet, and if you touch the vinyl shortly after washing it it gets a normal color again, and then is replaced by the mistiness again after a couple seconds.
