Bought a spin clean in the last month with a few amazon vouchers that were doing nothing. Happy with it. Really surface dirty/dusty 2nd hand records come out great. Crazy price for a piece of plastic and a bit of washing solution. I'm sure anyone with a bit of know how and drive (not me) could make their own.
Did you buy distilled water for it? The Internet is telling me i should expect to fork out €15 to €20 for a single bottle of this water.

Distilled water
is water that has been boiled into vapor and condensed back into liquid in a separate container. Impurities in the original water that do not boil below or near the boiling point of water remain in the original container. Thus, distilled water is one type of purified water.

You could probably get away with filtered water which might be cheaper and easier to do. Dublin water (southside anyway) is fairly pure due to the amount of granite it filters through.

I tried to distill some last night but after 10 or 15 minutes I had only about 2 drops of distilled water so I'm just going to buy some. Science is harder than it looks.

considering you can apparently give a solid clean to 20-30 records at a time with it, using 300ml or so of water at a time, it breaks down as fairly reasonable per clean record. 2 litres of that water should do a shitload of records

Yeah, true but after spending €89 on a plastic tub and now paying €17 for a bottle of water to put in it I feel like I'm being taken for a ride. But I'm sure the Milty Zerostat 3 will totally be worth €60, I should have that Monday. If I can identify just the finest anti-static inner sleeves I can say goodbye to the dust crackle that has been ruining my life.
