how do you clean it?
Am asking because I'm having difficulty and would like to know if there's a better way.
Besides sweeping tools of various types (regular broom, mini hand broom, etc.), as well as mops of various types
I've been taught to use rags and WD-40, under the claim that "it's a solvent" and thus naturally good at dissolving and cleaning up dirty stuff like smeared oil.
For example, if you've got a dirty surface, other cleaners might do nothing. But WD-40 might make quick work of it.
Is that how everyone else does it too?
However, the problem with WD-40 is the product itself also leaves a thin clear film of oil on where you use it. Especially bad if someone else doesn't know it's been "treated" with WD-40 and accidentally leans on it.
I haven't figured out what to clean that residual coating with, or if there's a better way than all of this in general. So far I just try to use window cleaner such as Windex or something, as a second go-around after the WD-40.
But as you can imagine, going once with WD-40 and then over that with Windex; cleaning becomes a huge PITA, and long drawn-out ordeal.
I used to put my tools on an NSF steel food prep cart table (with a matching size oil drip pan on top) if they were dirty, to use that to clean with WD-40.
Another good thing about the WD-40 part; it probably doesn't smell toxic and bad like brake cleaner.
But again; it takes a while and leaves an oily film.
Some say cars (and the places they reside) aren't meant to be clean. But when it is, other people are definitely impressed by it.
