Post image for How to Clean Vinyl Records

It’s one of my biggest pet peeves: I’m listening to a record, my favorite song comes on, and about halfway through… it skips.Read More

I have some records I bought 45 years ago that have spent the past 20 years in the barn. They have gotten wet and many of them have parts of the jackets sticking to them after I peeled the jackets off. Should I use a wet cloth to soften the paper?- don't worry about the labels because they have been destroyed by the water already. I am thinking that once I get the paper off, I can use one of the recommended solutions to clean the surfaces. Any ideas? I would like to listen to them again.

I have a larger problem than most. I was in a flood and I my records were the last of my worries. I am now getting around to them and would like to save as many as possible. They are very dirty and I'm not sure how to start any suggestions?

Jaina - You could try mixing the oils with witch hazel, but please note I have not tried this personally. I stick with lavender and/or lemongrass EO, which are clear and don't leave spots.
Jaina -Dec 02, 2015, 12:01AM
I purchased four of the wool dryer balls and love be them! I would like to use essential oils with them, but have a friend who did so and started getting spots on her clothes. Can I mix the essntial oil with something to make a spray to prevent spots?

A thought - - screw an eyelet (avail at any hardware store) into wood. secure beneath with bolt. Tie ropes through eyelet and knot. Depending on how heavy the plant is -- may or may not need this extra security. or, drill small hole through wood and create extra large knot below to secure. Extra strength with glue.

What variety of ivy is the plant? Love it!

Hello! I have a question: I want to make my soap with a rocky shape. How long should I live it hardening before I start molding it with my hands?
Jena -Nov 11, 2015, 8:49PM
These soaps are amazing...thank you for the recipe! I added a few lavender flowers in with the oatmeal and a few drops of vanilla essential oil. They look and smell delightful!

You can also use ginger essential oil and black pepper essential oil. They should be used at about 2 drops per5ml of your carrier base since they are pretty powerful
