Do I have to rinse the record with water?
Yes, rinsing is a part of any serious record cleaning process. It is common for Lucky Diamond to leave a fine layer of debris from the surfactant on the record as a result of the drying process. It is easily rinsed away, along with any other accumulated debris from the cleaning process or towel, restoring a quiet record surface.
Rinsing can be achieved most effectively by rinsing at the sink but can also be achieved using other rinsing methods on the market.

I'm now hearing more surface noise after cleaning!
It is common for all cleaning methods to result in some additional noise after cleaning.
With Lucky Diamond this is attributed either to an insufficient rinse process or the record isn’t completely dry.
To avoid this noise and enjoy a restored quietness, make sure and thoroughly rinse record as instructed and let dry completely.
I got Lucky Diamond on the inner label!
Always shield the inner label with towel while spraying to avoid contact. Many labels are water proof and Lucky Diamond’s non-solvent solution will not damage them.
However, many older labels are paper labels and no liquid of any kind should ever contact them. In the event that Lucky Diamond makes contact with any record inner label, calmly and lightly wipe it away with a dry microfiber towel immediately.
