Some friends of mine have the SpinClean and they're happy with it, but I don't think you need to go there. There are a million record-cleaning posts out there, but, IMO, the effectiveness of a record cleaning solution depends on the type of crud on a record, something you can never really know for sure. I've had good results with this method - Put the record on a towel and start with a decent scrubbing with Disc Doctor and a DD brush. DD is a damn good general cleaner, but it's a bitch to remove. It seems that no matter how much purified water rinses I give it with a brush, there are still some DD bubbles in there. So I remove the DD with warm tap water in the sink and it gets every bit of the DD and the dirt it picked up with it. Try not to wet the label of course. After that, I put it on my Nitty Gritty and use the NG alcohol-based fluid to remove any nasties that are in the tap water. I would prefer not to use tap water, but the results for me were undeniable. Besides, I feel confident that the NG fluid takes care of anything left. You can do the same with the VPI, either with Disc Doctor or AI #15 Super Cleaner - then use the VPI fluid as your final rinse. That's my opinion anyway.
