    I bought a cheap kit from the local record store. Vinyl Styl I think. It has a bottle of cleaning fluid and a brush. Seems to work well. 

    There are people who use a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. You just set the stylus down on the pad and pick it up again. Simple as that. I've heard that they work but haven't tried it myself.

    I have an LP #9 Stylus Cleaner from Record Research Lab.  I've never been able to fully decipher the confusing instruction sheet though.  For all I know, I've been using it improperly all this time.  I just put some of the fluid on the brush and pull the brush one way, back to fron, a few times.  They say something about decanting some of the fluid to clean contaminants off the bottle brush.  Very confusing.

    I made a mat today using a Wilson Jones static dissipative table mat. We'll see how well that works.

    Do they mean for you to dump some of the fluid on the brush as a means of cleaning it? Seems logical.
