Onzow Zerodust Stylus Cleaner
This fresh approach to stylus cleaning has saved all of us from the fear of hard bristled brushes and over applying fluids. Clean your stylus simply and effectively with the Zerodust from Japan. This space-age polymer bubble allows you to simply lower your stylus onto its surface, then quickly lift the arm lever and you’re done!
Watch as the stylus tip slowly sinks into the baby soft surface, leaving behind an impression with the stylus debris left behind! This unique device will last a lifetime, can be cleaned with tap water, and can extend the life of your cartridge! Comes complete with a magnifier to inspect your stylus! Our highest recommendation!
"Zerodust made of newly developed ultra soft plastic is unprecedented high performance cleaner and easy to use. As the cleaning element of Zerodust is softer and has 15 times more elasticity than a baby skin, this mysterious material will never damage your delicate stylus.
How to use:
Lightly press a stylus tip once or twice onto the Zerodust cleaning element, and pull it up. The element accepts the tip very naturally and finely removes dusts over the tip for noise and muddy free sound. Dusts now stick to the cleaning element leaving no scum thanks to so designed ingredients of the element material.
Zerodust container case top works as a magnifier convenient for precise check of the tip condition before and after cleaning.
When the cleaning element begins looking a little grungy, just wash it in warm water with a little bit of neutral detergent. Dust is easily removed, and you can use Zerodust over and over for a VERY long time.
"ZERODUST STYLUS TIP CLEANER, made in Japan by Onzo Laboratories. This is a blob of clear jelly surrounded by a thin membrane on which you touch the needle. For some reason the membrane attracts dust like a magnet, and the softness of the gel allows you to do it without damaging the mechanism. It also comes with a magnifier which is perfect for making sure the needle is clean. Does it work? Almost as well as the best liquid stylus cleaners, without the worry of migration of the liquid up into the cartridge, thus damaging the mechanism. So now, I clean the stylus with a liquid at the beginning of the session, then use the Zerodust the rest of the time. Works like a charm.

"A circular mound of semi-gelatinous goop in a box, onto which you gently lower your stylus," said MF. Use is simple: "After a few seconds, you lift the stylus, and it's as clean and residue-free as the proverbial whistle... Upside: no potentially dangerous brushing, and no fluids. Downside" if you like to leave your platter spinning, you'll have to stop it each time, or find another steady surface upon which to perform the operation." (Vol.25 No.3) April 2003
