    I definitely borrowed it from @Airhead but here goes...

    I make 500ml at a time...
    400ml distilled water
    100ml rubbing alcohol
    1-2 drops of Tergitol 15-S-3
    1-2 drops of Tergitol 15-S-9
    6-10 drops of Triton X-100 surfactant

    All those chemical agents I found on ebay quite cheap. I went for a "large" bottle of the X-100 as it was more cost-effective.

    Not of lot of hip hop (there's 1 x Afrika Bambaataa, IIRC).
    It's mostly bundled up with a lot of electronic stuff, acid/house/techno/...

    I've got some much better stuff in 12" available that I'll be adding after the w/e probably.

    Used records get a spray of water/isopropyl alcohol (with a tiny squirt of washing up liquid), scrub with a soft nailbrush, and rinse under a tap.

    This method is fine. I do something not too dissimilar. I make my own solution (based on previous recommendation by @Airhead ) and use a soft-bristle paint pad to get my solution into the groove.
    However I only use distilled water (mixed with rubbing alcohol). London water being so hard I wouldn't rinse a record with it.
