That guy is quite pedantic. No isopropyl because it leaches oils? Never read that before. And I use rinse aid in an iso and distilled water mix, and my vinyl didnt go up in smoke.

I have read it MANY times before. It is for the same reason that you do not wash your car with dishwashing liquid. It is destructive to the natural oils and waxes.

Meddle:
Any detergent is quite obvious, it will leave residue. But isopropyl alcohol wont do anything to vinyl.

I'm looking to buy a Spin-Clean. Anybody have any experience with this? Is it worth it or does it just drive the dirt deeper into the vinyl?

Right now im just using a Isopropyl/water mixture that works but its not a deep cleanse.
