First RV is Nitty Gritty's environmentally friendly, propellant-free pre-cleaner for vinyl records. Due to its high specific gravity and low surface tension, First RV flows into the record grooves, dissolving mold-release compounds and fingerprints, and reduces stylus friction and/or poor tracking. (It also removes fingerprints from CDs and DVDs!)
One 16oz. Bottle of First RV Pre-Cleaner Fluid cleans between 60-80 LPs.
"The appropriately named Nitty-Gritty First solution is the most effective solvent I have ever tested for initial loosening of oily, gummy, contaminants such as tobacco tar, silicone cloth goop, hand oils, and the like. It also effectively removes used record store price stickers from album jackets, and the glue sometimes left behind if you do manage to peel them off." -Michael Fremer, musicangle.com
