Be gentle. Let the brush and the liquid do the work for you. If you have a lot of dirty records from new purchases etc, buy a record cleaner. Its well worth it.

Hey guys! Thanks for all the input. I've switched back and forth over the last year of using the DD brushes with if I should apply a lot of pressure or not.
I should have spelled out my cleaning ritual a little better I suppose. I've got a Nitty Gritty Record Master that I use as well and I've been using the Audio Intelligent Vinyl Solutions with great results.
I had a conversation with Paul Frumkin, the guy who developed the AI solutions, last night and we were talking about how it's impossible for any material these brushes are made out of to get deep into the micro-grooves and it got me thinking about how I clean.
Thanks again for the input - it just reassures me that I shouldn't be bearing down too hard.
I'd like to hear from anyone else on their opinion though - keep the thread going if you've got any further input!
