Is there anything that you should NOT use to clean your fleshing machine's blade?
Return to Tanning Category Menu
I clean my blade and guards with clorox clean-up. Its a bleach spray. Right after that I coat it with a spray oil like wd 40. Then wipe it down with paper towel. Blade and machine still looks new. This works for me.
The way you asked the question leaves the door wide open and makes it difficult to give you an answer ... i.e. there are allot of things Not to use - anthrax, gasoline, epoxy etc. see what I mean. You may want to ask the same question a different way. Such as what is best to use when cleaning my fleshing blade?
What I do is wipe everything down with the same solution that I mix up to neutralize. Then I wash it with soap and water followed up with a light oil coating. Hope this helps.
I think you answered my question, but I was thinking along the "cleaners" category. I mainly don't want to use a harsh chemical cleaner that might dull my blade.
How about my spray bottle of Lysol concentrate & water followed by a light spray of WD40? I think the PH in the lysol is low enough to neutralize the acid residue on the blade.
