description

The record brush is a hand tool to clean vinyl music records by wiping dust and fingerprints without damaging the record. One model consists of a rectangular and rounded oak block with a soft felt brush surface, usually black. It somewhat resembles a whiteboard eraser. A slot is provided on one side to store the accompanying cleaning fluid. Other models include bleach goat hair or velvet.

There is a wide variety of vinyl brushes in carbon and plastics. Most of them are anti-static to rid the plate of its static charge. [MOT]
