Some things not mentioned in that particular M.E. post:
- clean the stylus after every side (important)
- dry brush first to remove any loose fluff, then M.E. it
- always dry brush or ZeroDust after using the M.E., to remove any M.E. fibers (they're abrasive, you don't want them on your vinyl)
Anyone wanting a writeup can email me. I have a Word doc explaining the research and several methods of safe, effective usage based on our experience and that of many happy users. Also, as Rushton said, a search on VA will turn up hundreds of posts.
Amusingly, there's now a U.K. audio outlet selling M.E. based stylus cleaners for £6 apiece, http://www.vinylcare.co.uk/stylus_cleaner.htm
I'm thinking patent infringement suit. ;-)
The before/after stylus photos at the bottom are pretty interesting, though the grunge remaining near the cantilever in the "after" photo can be removed by a better technique than simply dipping the stylus in the M.E. That technique (explained in the Word doc) is mildly riskier, but also more effective.
