Rozoil Gruv Glide II Record Cleaner is the original dry record treatment that makes records sound better. GRUV-GLIDE was developed by people who love music and love playing records!
Rozoil Gruv Glide II Record Cleaner is a patented and trademarked dry record treatment developed in the late 1970's by Irwin and Bennett Rowe. a father and son team who owned and operated highly successful high-end audio stores in the Southwest. Irwin, a famous electrical engineer and superb trumpet player and musician, loved playing records but was generally dissatisfied with the record cleaners and treatments then available. Some just lined up dust, some attacked the vinyl and altered the record's molecular structure, and some were costly and difficult to use.
Irwin wanted a record treatment that:
Easy To Use
Improves Record Fidelity
Records & Styli Last Longer
One Application Per Record Side
Treats 150 Records Per Kit (used As Directed)
With those qualities in mind, and his extensive aerospace engineering background, Irwin went to work and tried many formulations. After years of development and extensive testing, Rozoil Gruv Glide II Record Cleaner was formulated and patented. Irwin and Bennett sold the stores and became full-time "GRUV-GLIDERS" in 1981. GRUV-GLIDE is now used world-wide by record lovers and professional DJ's. GRUV-GLIDE is made with pride in the USA and your satisfaction is 100% guaranteed!
Each Rozoil Gruv Glide II Record Cleaner kit contains one 4.5 oz aerosol treatment, two specialized applicator pads, directions and our famous static tester (a foam pellet).
Many of our customers have also been using Genuine GRUV-GLIDE on their CD's (compact discs) to completely zap away static and make them sound better. GRUV-GLIDE is safe on all your CD's
HOW TO APPLY GRUV-GLIDE
Follow these four simple steps to apply GRUV-GLIDE to your records.
1)Hold can approximately 4 to 5 inches from one of the pads (A).
2)Aim can at pad and spray two spritzes (quick burst) onto pad.
3) Use other pad (B) to give sprayed pad (A) one quick, light, wipe.
4) Apply sprayed side pad (A) onto record. Rotate the platter several times while maintaining light pressure.
WHAT IS GRUV-GLIDE?
GRUV-GLIDE is a record treatment that makes records sound better, removes static, cleans and extends record and stylus life. GRUV-GLIDE is easy to use and very economical.
HOW IS GRUVE-GLIDE DIFFERENT THAN OTHER TREATMENTS?
GRUV-GLIDE does not change, alter, or attack your precious vinyl records, unlike some other treatments. GRUV-GLIDE is dispensed from an easy-to-use aerosol, but actually goes on dry. GRUV-GLIDE is completely water-soluble (you can wash it off it you desire). GRUV-GLIDE actually makes most records sound better by improving tracking (degree of improvement will vary and is record-dependent). Other treatments just clean while GRUV-GLIDE removes static and enhances tracking, too!
IF YOU LIVE IN A DRY, STATIC-PRONE ENVIRONMENT, YOU WILL LOVE GRUV-GLIDE!
Remember, static electricity can attract micro particles that will contaminate your record and degrade its sound. GRU-GLIDE REMOVES THE STATIC!
WILL GRUV-GLIDE HARM MY OLD RECORDS?
GRUV-GLIDE is 100% safe for all your vinyl records. "Sheffield Labs", has placed an endorsement for GRUV-GLIDE inside their record sleeves.
HOW DO I APPLY GRUV-GLIDE?
GRUV-GLIDE is sprayed onto a special applicator pad in a very quick, short burst. The pad is then quick wiped with the second pad and the initial pad is put on the record. The platter is spun while maintaining light pressure. VERY QUICK AND VERY EASY! HOW TO USE.
HOW LONG DOES AN APPLICATION LAST?
You only need to treat each record one time. However, many GRUV-GLIDE customers like to re-treat after many playbacks. This is perfectly acceptable and will not harm the record.
HOW DOES GRUV-GLIDE WORK?
GRUV-GLIDE is a patented formulation that puts down a very uniform dry lubricant with anti-static properties. The molecule is very small and highly specialized. Imagine pushing your finger over a FORMICA countertop (stylus to record). Your finger gets hot and tends to chatter and bounce, not maintaining full contact. Now imagine spraying the countertop with a dry lubricant (or home cooking spray for demo purposes). Your finger glides effortlessly and maintains absolute full contact. In other words, your stylus does a better job tracking with GRU-GLIDE.

DMA Magazine - April May 2002
“After using Rozoil Gruv Glide II Record Cleaner, I can honestly say that I can hear a big difference in how my vinyl sounds...Unlike other products out there, GRUV-GLIDE II doesn't just clean your vinyl, it actually lubricates the grooves without leaving a film. It removes the static charge on the piece of vinyl and, believe it or not, the sonic quality improves noticeably...Well worth it in my opinion.
Stereophile Recommended Component Class B, 10/96; rev. Vol. 9 #8.
“Record de-staticizing agent that ST found to give better sound. Rozoil Gruv Glide II Record Cleaner doesn't grunge-up the stylus or leave a film.
Stereophile, Vol. 9 #8 December, 1986, p.41
“...I really groove on Rozoil Gruv Glide II Record Cleaner. if I sound too high, though, maybe it's because I"ve been breathing too much of the stuff. What is GRUV-GLIDE? Irwin's not saying. It's some sweet-smelling chemical lubricant, that comes out of a can in a fine, aerosol spray with an odor reminiscent of Marvel Mystery Oil. you spray two brief burst on a black powder puff, rub that puff against another - I"m just following Irwin's instructions - then buff one side of your record. A little goes a long way. What it does, superbly, is clean and destaticize your record. And make it sound better. The sonic difference is more dramatic than with Last, which is a different sort of product. GRUV-GLIDE makes no claim to being a record preservative. The stuff does seem to lubricate the record, but when used as applied, it doesn't leave any icky film or grunge up the stylus. I love it."
Audio Gram #17 - January, 1982
“Our ears tell us this product is a smashing success...Rozoil Gruv Glide II Record Cleaner geometrically elevates some disks and systems to near perfection...the listener is transported 20 rows forward into the lap of luxury."
