Oil on brush head


Recommended Posts

I cleaned a commercial property last week and as I cleaned the side door I got some kind of oil from the hinges on my brush head.Β 

Any ideas on how to clean it off? I have soaked it but hasn't budged.Β 

Thanks in advance. πŸ˜πŸ‘

It sounds like grease and you don't want to clean windows with it or you will streak all the glass, been there. You could try neat degreaser with a cloth and painstakingly go through the brush. IfΒ old toss it and use a new one, you will quickly find that it pays to have plenty of brushes close at hand.

A bit of washing up liquid in a bowl of warm water and run your fingers through the bristles , or Virosol or similar in warm water let it soak if needs be , hopefully will remove it .Β

I'd drop in a 20% TFR solution and leave it overnight. In the morning give it a good scrub then put a good rinse with warm water. If that doesn't sort it then I'd bin it.

This happened to me once, with anti vandal grease. However, i cleaned a whole commercial property before i realised 😩 To clean my brush i soaked it for three days, changing the water everyday,Β in a bucketΒ using Citrosol (citrus degreaser) diluted in water. A good strong solution though. Β Worked a treat. Although i used it on my kitchen first to test. πŸ‘πŸ»

We use them on all of our poles, especially good when working 40'+
