Live Phish: How to safely remove the sticky goo

(1/5) > >>

twatts:
OK, so I've seen the discussion over the years.  And I saw that my own LP CDs are pretty much all covered with "that sticky goo" a couple of years ago.  But I never did anything about it because I don't listen to those discs...

Anyways, has anyone come up with a safe way to remove the goo??? 

I'm going to play with some safe solvents today.  I'll report back... 

If anyone can point me to a previous thread, that would be great.  I've had no luck with Search, nor Google...

Thanks,

Terry

OK, I've had immediate success:  isopropyl alcohol. 

Using cotton balls, lightly damp with isopropyl alcohol, I've been able to remove the goo without damaging the artwork or finish of the CDs.  I've also been able to remove any goo from the Folder Pages as well. 

After wiping down everything, I've wiped clean with cotton balls soaked in water.  The first few are up in the kitchen drying now. 

So far, I've had great success.  I've also pushed paper CD envelopes in to sleeves of the Folder Pages and intend to put the CDs back in the Folder.

Thanks,

Terry




edit:  I've noticed that some of the color from the artwork comes off with the alcohol.  I highly recommend that you use the alcohol sparingly and wipe very lightly.

I found our thread about it (ya gotta search "goopy"  :wink:) but it looks like you don't need it.  I was thinking alcohol myself but I've been afraid to try.  Thanks for the update!
