After cleaning, the Prodigy Monarch, which is available in many colors, pulls the washing liquid off the record in no time at all. The principle was developed by his father Keith Monks, who launched his first machine in 1969.
The picture in the background shows said father with little Jonathan in August 1965, who is proudly holding his first record: "Help" by the Beatles. "Apparently I was so happy with it that I took it everywhere," Monks comments the scene. Whether his father came up with the idea of a record washing machine because the son dirtied the records is not known.
