yes clear pvc outer cover sleeves can damage vinyl - not so apparent on albums as the cardboard cover can protect the vinyl, but on 45's will be disastrous leaving a mist over the surfaces. i use polythene covers, NEVER those clear sleeves!

I get a few of these records from time to time. Try some rubbing alcohol on a wad of cotton, then wash record with a dab of Ajax or Joy dish soap. Not a guarantee that all records will clean up nicely, but the record will be clean.
