A pretty funny (and interesting) thread on cleaning vinyl

Located here

"...So after a good bit of scotch I have concluded that you can probably clean your vinyl with most anything and it will sound better, that vinyl doesn't deteriorate very quickly under full strength of either substance, so I can't imagine you'll do much harm with short cleaning sessions of either. Long term problems? Maybe, and I'm going to hang onto this record and test later, but I doubt it...

OTOH, the much gentler water/alcohol/Dawn combo worked as well and probably has NO negative effect. I'm sure the expensive record cleaner also works and makes the owner feel good. Nothing wrong with that either.

Off to more scotch! Might try carb cleaner and WD-40 next....:
