Have you tried steam cleaning with the Eureka Hot Shot Steam Cleaner? This has been recommended by several audiophile magazines. BTW - What was the wetting agent you used that has left all this residue?

if you have never used Lencoclean you do not understand his problem. I got rid of all my old Lencocleaned lp's years ago they were from my teens and were not pristine anyway now replaced with Japanese pressings or some minty import for good information on a good record cleaning fluid check this thread. check albertporter's comments, fluid name record research, vinyl wash
I just yesterday rediscovered my Genie Bottle. I followed the instructions exactly, except I used an empty 40 oz Bacardi bottle instead of a gin bottle as George suggests. LOL. On the cleaning machine, brushing it on raised a suspicious foam, but I trusted.
The vinyl after being vacuumed was oh so black and shiny, just the way we like it. This was a German EMI disc (Electrola) which had sounded veiled before the treatment.
Afterwards, all the qualities we love in analog were more evidenced; the total effect was like wiping a windshield clean.
I've tried VPI's solution, Last, and some of the home brews enumerated by Google - but this one is amazing !! My favorite. I even A/B'd it on a sealed set - one mint side without, the other with. It makes a dramatic improvement even on virgin vinyl.
