If it's any help, I agree with most of the above. I use an RCM (Okki Nokki) and have a 1980's ultrasonic stylus cleaner (Ortofon electro stylus cleaner) I use very month or so. And I use one of those antistatic guns as I turn the record over and before popping it back into a (anti-static) sleeve. I use a carbon fibre stylus brush and the audio-technica cleaning fluid (works well on the CF brush) at the end of the session, and in between records if they sound mucky.
 
Records can sound wonderful, dirt doesn't.

Also if you have a MC cart it is a good idea to demagnetize it on a regular bases. If you have a MM cart DO NOT demagnetize your cart I use a Aesthetix demagnetizer and it works very well Cheers Doug

Does anyone else here dip their stylus (carefully!) into a little pad of "Magic Eraser" ? The little specks of dirt left on the white pad seem to show it's effective.

For cleaning the stylus I recently got one of these

So far I'm pleased with it.

Wow! The Nagaoka roller's become expensive! I remember it the first time round . . .  ICL1P - do you find there's any residue left on the records? (I presume not, but . . . ).

And I used the Onzow gloopy pad until I discovered the Magic Eraser . . .

Mine is actually the Nagaoka 152 and not the new 1000; it cost me a tad under £50. I thought that was expensive enough!! No residues that I'm aware of.
