Is this "someone who works in the plastics industry" a reliable, knowledgeable person? After all, many "facts" are circulated by people who hear them from someone who sounds convincing and appears to know what they're talking about. Hell, I've been guilty myself of taking statements at face value, only to find later that it's crap and the person really doesn't have a clue what they're talking about, even though it all sounded quite logical at the time!
Just because they work in the industry doesn't necessarily mean they're right.
I would be very interested if anyone can confirm this possible effect of Iso-propyl, 'cos I've been using it for years and would like to know if I've sentenced my discs to a slow death :eek: .
I use the small sachets used to clean optic fibre cable ends, but only use them to remove greasy fingerprints - bear in mind that this stuff evaporates within seconds, so it's not as if you're soaking the discs. (You're not, I hope ).
So, can anyone enlighten us further?
