Gruv Glide and CD's

Does anybody have any experience with using "Grov Glide" on Cd's. I found the stuff while I was purusing elusive discs web site. They mention that it is good for cleaning CD's and also performs a anti-static function. They state one application is good for a period of time and that it is stereophile recommended.

Thanks, Chuck
I only use GruvGlide on LP's
If you want a much more economical ($6.95 for a 12 oz. spray can) antistatic treatment for the label side of your CD's, CD player trays, all of your cabling, turntable covers, etc, get a can of Endust For Electronics at the grocery store or Walgreens. Shake the can & spray some on a piece of blue lint-free paper towel, then apply. Also great for cleaning equipment faceplates, TV screens, you name it. And WAY cheaper than Nordost ECO3 or GruvGlide.

They were refering to using the "gruv glide" on the data side of the cd.

It may work for anti-static but groovy-glid is also a lubricant to help the stylus ease through the grooves more smoothly.
I agree with Bob,get the Endust.You dont need the lubricant,only antistatic.G.G. is ~$25 a can,Endust ~$3-4 at most in some places like wal-mart.
BTW..Endust anti-static now comes in pre moistioned sheets.

My understanding of Grove Glide is that is is a lubricant for vinyl. This is why I asked the question about using it on Cd's. I have a concern about using a lubricant, dry or not, on the data side of a CD. But, who knows, maybe I am missing something here so I thought I would ask. Thanks for your responses.

I wouldnt use a lubricant on CD's.Nothing touches the CD that has to be lubricated.Might make a mess in there also over time.
I don't see how any coating will improve readability. Unless it helps laser better see differences in reflectivity.
Click you heels together three times and say, "I want to go home to vinyland". Seriously, Gruv Glide is superb in limiting static electricity. I would think that you would want to apply "whatever anti-static product" on the label side only. No science in this opinion. Just reasoning. And worth what you paid for it.
Dear Chuck,

I've used Gruv Glide faithfully on all of my records since 1981, with great results.

After reading your post I tried it on my CD's. I have a few that are duplicates. I treated one, played them both back and compared. The treated one did sound a tad better. What really improved was the quality "SHEEN" of the surface. I can't get any dirt or dust to stay on the CD surface, (must be the antistatic effect)

I'll keep experimenting and I will keep you posted.

I called Elusive Disc, and Music Direct. Both state it's excellent on CD's as well as records, therefore it should be perfectly safe.
I also agree with Bob bundus and lugnut. They are right on the money, as usual.

Did you apply the Gruv Glide to the data side of the disc? It sounds like you did in your comments.

Thanks, Chuck
Hi Chuck,

I applied Gruv Glide to both sides of the CD. It works so well at removing static on records, and others have recommended it on CD's, so I tried it.

It is very inexpensive too. I did 250 CD's with 1 kit.

I have not done any type of scientific measure, but I believe there is a degree of improvement. The CD's look superb too. I noticed dust will not land on them if I accidentally leave a CD out of it's case. The dust falls away from the CD and actually forms a ring away from the edge and off the CD.

Hope this helps.
