Cleaning 78s

Thursday, July 31

Cleaning the 78’s from the Czech Slovak record collection has been our longest project so far. Just the cursory cleaning we did out at the Oakdale paper facility took two months. We used two water baths, one with photo flo, a mild soap; and one with clean water to rinse. We then hung them up to dry using the paper drying rack out at Oakdale. We cleaned 3,300 78s altogether.
