It's a key to paper towel dispensers, and toilet paper dispensers. Well, actually each side is a key. This particular one will fit Georgia Pacific products. Amazon link to this key.

u/schwab002 · 38 pointsr/askscience

The cdc website she linked to says to rinse with solution (never water) and wipe with a tissue. Maybe invest in some kimwipes:

u/Minifig81 · 33 pointsr/LifeProTips

CLR® Calcium, Lime and Rust Remover

Comes in different sizes too, I just picked the first result on Amazon. :D

u/ALARE1KS · 27 pointsr/LifeProTips

Calcium/Lime/Rust. It's a clearner specifically designed for stains and buildup caused by those types of residues.

u/i_dont_trust_the_VA · 9 pointsr/mildlyinteresting

Are they scratches or calcium buildup? Try some CLR on that bowl, it might clean it right up.

u/GerbilSchooler13 · 9 pointsr/doordash

Pair this with this and you'll be able to handle 2 orders of Chili's gallon of lemonade bullshit and keep it cold at the same time Edit: If you'r not on a bike

u/LearnerPermit · 7 pointsr/AutoDetailing

This is one of those youtube influenced marketing things. For a home hobby detailer, the "cart" is their driveway or a cabinet in the garage, stack a few free five gallon buckets in the work space. Towels, sponges and applicator pads can go inside. Spray bottles can hang off the outside rim. But selling a system is far more profitable, it gets customers to buy products and services they might not otherwise buy.

If you consider this adam's detail cart. Each shelf is only rated for 44lbs. On the other hand something like this rubbermaid cart which gets battle tested by janitors, warehouses, etc and has accessories for tool and bottle caddies.

There is value in having one of these carts for full time detailers so they have all the equipment they need right next to them for labor efficiency. For the home hobbist or low volume this bottle caddy might be better.

Eventually you can get the rubbermaid service cart and this caddy can sit on the top shelf.

As for how a cart is organized, what chemicals, towels and pads you keep on it is dictated by the type of services you most frequently do. Our system is glass cleaner & APC bottles hang off the lip of the cart, tire dressing bottles in a caddy, the applicator brushes in a tray. Dirty towels on the top shelf as well, when a detailer finishes a car they take the dirty towels to washers. Washers clean and fold the towels.

Wax, interior dressing and leather conditioner on middle shelf in individual 16 oz squeeze bottles. Bottom shelf is for 1 gal bottles of the glass cleaner, interior dressing. Wax and leather get kept in the store room where customers can't steal it.

Clean towels are on a separate rack

u/hansmoman · 7 pointsr/AskElectronics

I'll just give you a list of the items I've been using (and like): Hakko FX-888D. The extra tips may be unnecessary, I only ever use the one chisel tip Leaded solder Brushes Side cutters Flux Solder Wick KimWipes Isopropyl Alcohol Acetone spray (use carefully/sparingly) Jewelers loupe Tweezers Hot air station (works well despite Chinesium)

Also, I noticed in Dave's videos he rarely adds flux, just the flux that's built into the multicore solder. I don't know if I'm alone on this one but with flux I always felt the bigger the glob the better the job. Just have to clean it afterwards with the solvent, tissues & brushes.

Edit: Okay that's a much bigger list than I thought, this stuff can get expensive!

u/XxxRDTPRNxxX · 5 pointsr/doordash

Walmart sells hotbags for around $5 each, in the sporting goods section near the coolers. Stock up on them.

Also this thing has been a lifesaver for me when it comes to drinks.

u/bhakta001 · 4 pointsr/AutoDetailing

Calcium, Lime, and Rust Remover

It's used to remove hard minerals. You have to be careful not to get it on the paint. Thus diluted CLR should be used.

u/fuzzyfuzz · 4 pointsr/sysadmin

I highly recommend a standing mat. Definitely cuts down on foot fatigue.

u/XdoubiousX · 4 pointsr/doordash

Use the hotbag to prevent your car smelling like delicious food you aren't allowed to eat. Make sure the customer always sees the food coming out of the hotbag to get your 5 stars.

And use something like this to keep drinks stable. Put the carrier in the backseat and buckle it up.

u/BleuXShadoW · 4 pointsr/electronic_cigarette
u/ohgreatballs · 3 pointsr/photography

Blow it off with rocket air, use these and this. Bit of solution on one cloth, wipe in a circle from center, use another cloth to dry. Perfect every time, I work in a camera shop and that's what we do there.

u/A_Shoggoth · 3 pointsr/doordash

I got mine on Amazon, it's meant to be a cleaning caddy for pine sol bottles and stuff but it works great as a cup holder, especially for big fast food drinks.

If the link doesn't work, just search plastic cleaning caddy on Amazon.

u/pirategolf13 · 3 pointsr/golf

You can buy grips online or at your local golf retailer. The retailer should be able to install them for $2-3 per club. Installing them is best left to a professional until you know what you are doing. It doesn't look too difficult, but I've never done it myself.

And CLR is a calcium, lime, and rust remover. I've used it to clean up an old set of irons and it worked well. CLR

u/Kailola · 3 pointsr/amateur_boxing

I like this glove deodorizer I got off amazon, I wipe down the inside of my gloves with the same mixture as you once a week. I usually spray my shoes down with this deodorizer daily. I have a bunch of these mini deodorizers that I put in my gym bag + sneakers on my way home. Haven't had one foul smell emerge from my bag/gear to date so I think I'm doing everything right lol.

ETA: I wash all my clothing (socks, shirts, leggings/shorts)/sports bras with a odor eliminator along with laundry detergent as well.

u/MountSwolmore · 2 pointsr/steroids

This was from DL:

You guys convinced me to home brew. Especially after I just did some math on what my latest $2k purchase would get me.

Putting together the list, will be refining as I learn more.

u/AbsolutelyPink · 2 pointsr/HomeImprovement


The fiberglass gel coat may be worn off. If this is the case, good luck cleaning it. You could get it recoated. If it doesn't seem worn off, try soaking towels with white vinegar and laying them on the area for 24 hours, keeping the towels wet.

There is also a product called Sunny Brite, I used a lot when cleaning homes. Works fabulously. Ventilate the room.

u/lady5murf · 2 pointsr/BabyBumps

The first thing I thought of is those blue shop towels!!

But, I think these might be what you're looking for: soft towels!

u/ofmic3andm3n · 2 pointsr/hookah


That box will last the life of the hookah. Its a lab glass cleaner. I use it before shipping bongs in the mail.

u/HaggarShoes · 2 pointsr/fermentation

It should be fine. I made mine from a bottle of store bought kombucha. It's likely good to err on the side of caution with the first brew (as in, get it started, but don't drink the first batch and check the scoby for mold or other things with the second batch). Avoid any sources of metal in your set up (a sun tea jar or a big ceramic rig used for serving giant bottles of water are good.

If you're completely unfamiliar, I use the ratio of 1 gallon water (tap since you're going to bring it to boil anyways): 1 cup white sugar: 8 bags black tea (steeped for 5 minutes or so). Let it cool to room temperature and pour it into your container without the scoby in the jar (not overtly harmful but it will rip up the scoby somewhat).

There are two camps (not ideological, but practical) for making kombucha, one is continuous brewing and the other is something like individual batches (forget the correct nomenclature). The former, means you use the same fermenting vessel continusouly and the other involves transferring the scoby from a finished batch to a new one (useful if your container doesn't have a spigot).

So, all in all, make sure you have the ingredients for the sugar tea mixture and have a glass/ceramic container you're going to brew the kombucha in (with a towel to cover it and some way to keep it secure--rubber band or what not). If you've got local ethnic marts (especially Asian) you can find really good deals on black tea (I get like 100 bags for $5) that you won't find at most local supermarkets. Cheap white sugar is fine.

When you start getting neck deep in scobys and have no one to give them to, you can certainly toss them in the compost pile, but you can also make a mean vegan jerky out of them, or chewy candies of most any flavor variety.

I've been making kombucha for more than a year, happy to help you with any questions if you want.

u/Lenhungvn1 · 2 pointsr/postmates

I have one of these with some strip insulation on it to hold the drinks in better since this is actually fitted cleaner bottles.

Rubbermaid Commercial Deluxe Carry Cleaning Caddy, Black (FG315488BLA)

u/SystemFolder · 2 pointsr/ThriftStoreHauls

Put the grates in a bucket and pour enough of this stuff to completely submerge the plates. Let sit for as long as possible, overnight would be best. Remove the plates from the bucket, hose them off, and let them dry. Now you'll want to season them, like all cast iron, by rubbing them down with peanut oil and heating them on the grill until the shine from the oil goes away.

u/doug · 2 pointsr/comics

That's not unusual. I used to work as an usher tearing tickets and by the end I did not want to walk home. What you need, if you can get past the ridiculous name, is an Extreme Standing Mat.

u/WorstCaseONT · 2 pointsr/toronto

Do you protest? Do you stand? Do you need to take it to the next level?! NOW YOU CAN WITH OUR EXTREME STANDING MAT! For the low low cost of $135 and being forced to answer questions like "do you really need a mat to stand?", you too can stand...TO THE EXTREME....

u/firecat57 · 2 pointsr/newborns

Medline Ultrasoft Dry Baby Wipes, Gentle Disposable Cleansing Cloths, 500 Count, Dry Wipe Size is 10 x 13 inches, Great for Sensitive Skin and can be used as Baby Washcloths

We used those instead of wipes. Just get them wet when you need them.

A&D Treat was the magic cream for us. I heard it’s different for everyone. For my friend it was Butt Paste. Just go to target and pick one and give it a few days to see if it works.

I’d encourage you to consider diaper changes more often (1.5 hrs), but no wiping unless needed. Or let your baby go without a diaper for some time. Obviously that’s asking for trouble. We laid the baby on top of unused puppy pee pads (the cheap medical equivalent) and let that booty air out.

Don’t feel bad about the diaper rash. It happens to all of us. Good luck!

u/intjperspective · 2 pointsr/aquaponics

Alconox, is a biodegradable lab detergent. To my understanding, it rinses clean and leaves no bad residues (unlike usual soaps and detergents). I have used it for cleaning tanks for fish and to clean lab equipment.

I have no idea about this diesel compound and it's safety. Also note that fish are more sensitive than crabs and other crustaceans.

u/BackToTheBasic · 2 pointsr/microscopy

It has a trinocular head, the tube is to mount a camera if you choose. The opening should be capped when not in use so dust and dirt stays out. 100x objectives need immersion oil on the slide to focus. Youtube should have plenty of videos how to use the oil.

For cleaning look here

A general tip, I recommend getting a box of these I use them to clean up glass surfaces on the scope and even sunglasses, but should be used with a lense cleaner and in proper process.

u/NealMustard · 2 pointsr/barista
  1. Feet enlarge as the day goes on, and it's very common for feet to be different sizes.^1 I'd suggest double checking your shoe fit near the end of the day. Other issues could be caused by the way you're standing. If your shop doesn't have any bar pads^2 make sure to get some. Lastly make sure you're in decent shape, not obese, exercise regularly, and give yourself adequate rest.

  2. I'm not sure exactly what you mean by an automatic machine. Could you expand on that? Regardless here are a few barista tips: when tamping espresso make sure to put the tamper in the middle of your palm. To find the spot make a straight line with your hand and forearm. Take your thumb of your opposite hand and find the area by the crease of your thumb by your wrist. There should be an area that you can perfectly rest a tamper. Always push from there because it puts less strain on your wrist and other joints. The second tip is to make sure you're not pinching your hand while steaming milk. My preference was to stick my three big fingers on the inside of the pitcher handle and to use my pinky on the outside to balance the pitcher. This is what felt most natural for my hand and caused the least stress.

u/porkfish66 · 2 pointsr/PlantedTank

Try CLR. The stuff is extremely effective and also extremely water soluble. A thorough rinse will remove any traces of nasty chemical goo and leave the tank safe for use.

u/Ellexoxoxo33 · 2 pointsr/AutoDetailing

D-Limonene!! Only the pure industrial grade. We had a family of Racoons in our boat and we thought we would have to total it. This stuff works!

u/CybRdemon · 2 pointsr/msp

I haven't tried it yet but I have been looking at getting the Klein Tradesman Pro Tech Bag. I have also heard good things about the Veto Pro Pac XLT Laptop-Tool Bag but it is way more than I need.

u/Nekkosan · 2 pointsr/AsianBeauty

Damn! Hard area to cover up.

I'd use things like micellars and wash cloths (that are dripping wet). There are also these dry [wipes]( They have no cleanser but you wet them, but they don't end up dripping. . You can use them with micellar or on cottons. When I was sick I used them to bath all over with micellar and then a second with just water to rinse. Or micellar and cottons. Maybe graduate to foaming cleanser and wash cloth making sure it doesn't drip.


But I wonder of you could get a cape like they have at salons for sheetmasking and cleansing.

I'd use non-waterproof sunscreen & makeup if you leave the house. Keep it simple as you said.

Dry shampoo. Pantene in the Gold wasn't too bad. It v stinks but doesn't leave white stuff all over.


u/C41n · 2 pointsr/Kombucha

u/dontwantnone09 · 2 pointsr/homegym

Sorry.... Calcium Lime Rust. You can see a picture of it in the Tools photo.

Not sure what is available in your area, but it is just a simple, nice cleaner for metal and the like. Probably a LOT of different options.

u/clee290 · 2 pointsr/MechanicalKeyboards

Someone had suggested these, but I just used an old cotton t-shirt that had been through quite a few washes. Someone also suggested to just use paper towels. Reason being, if my old shirt would have gotten caught on an SMD component, it could end up tearing the component off the PCB, but the paper towel would have just torn.

I did have to scratch a bit, but that could be due to residue having been there for a little while. Like I didn't clean it right after soldering :P Basically what I did was wrap my finger in my shirt (one layer) then rub at it. Sometimes I would use my nail, still with the shirt wrapped around my finger, to scratch at it.

u/OaksAndOlives · 2 pointsr/postmates

I got this drink holder on amazon for $10. My car only has 2 cup holders and one of them usually has my drink in it, so I keep this one on the passengers seat for when I have multiple orders with drinks. The free drink holder that restaurants will give you (when they haven’t already run out) doesn’t support drinks well and they’ll tip over if I make a tight turn or hit potholes/speed bumps.

Looks pretty cool

u/SnookerFlame · 2 pointsr/HomeImprovement

It looks like a rust stain. I have had success using CLR to remove rust stains. It's the kind of product you want to sit wet on the stain for a little bit.

Disclaimer: I never tried to use CLR on a fiberglass bathtub so read the label.

u/glitchvid · 2 pointsr/Amd

I used to buy:

But those appear to no longer be available.

These Kimtech ones should be a pretty good alternative:

Edit: The Xcel ones didn't really shed if torn/cut, for what it's worth.

Edit 2: There's also a lot of really good cleaning swabs (as opposed to shitty cotton ones) on Amazon under "Cleanroom Swab"

u/OrangePoser · 2 pointsr/Tools

Veto Pro Pac XLT - I got this a few months and I love it. There are zippers to close up the tool pockets; no more dropped tools! There's a center laptop pocket, but I use it for my GoPro, tripod and accessories. Easy to handle. Wasn't too expensive. Hard bottom. The whole thing feels durable. Also, the shoulder strap has a clip to hold itself to the handle for easy storage.

Perfect bag for me.

Here's more tools I use:

Edit: Sorry. Didn't notice you wanted to wear your bag. For that I use Björnkläder pants from Enjoy!

u/ThrowAwayAccountAZ · 2 pointsr/doordash

I have a been doing Doordash in Downtown Vancouver, Canada on bicycle for awhile now. Here's a couple takeaways;

Your questions;

-The delivery distances are generally shorter, usually less than <3 miles (<4.82km), however you can and will be bounced from pretty deep in the West End (Nando's and Juke for example) on Davie out of the Downtown zone to Canada Post over by Commercial & East Hastings. Another one is delivering from Downtown to somewhere around South Granville or Shaughnessy, you either have to suck it up and go over the Granville bridge directly or take a more circuitous route.

-Per delivery payment is the same, however in my experience compared to a car or a scooter / motorcycle you will get up to 40%~ less orders on average. You'll also get way less stacked orders and I think there's a hard limit of two (2) at a time for anything without a motor.

-I don't believe you need to open a second Dasher account, I thought you could talk with the gentleman at the Dowtown office and they can just switch your vehicle type around. Doesn't hurt to ask them, even if they are pretty overworked most of the time.

General comments;
-E-Bikes are pretty nice, however doing deliveries on a bicycle are a pretty fundamental lifestyle change from doing it with a car. If you can afford the inconvenience I would try doing a handful of deliveries first on a normal bike before you commit a not insignificant amount of money to a good E-Bike and everything that entails.

-Invest in a good lock, anti-tamper system (Pinhead for example) and register the bike you do buy with garage 529 at any local community police centre. Bike theft is unfortunately a chronic issue in Vancouver and its not going to change - Take reasonable steps to protect your property.

-Consider getting a rear or front rack that can handle a caddy for drinks. It might not be perfect, but the algorithm with sadistic pleasure will send you on coffee runs to Waves with alarming regularity during 7am - 12pm. Otherwise you'll probably need to decline those orders as without at least a cardboard drink handler to put in your thermal bag it's a gamble if those drinks make it intact.

-Cycling in traffic is dangerous, don't ever forget it, always remain focused and try to mentally route yourself along streets like Hornby, Union, E Pender and Haro whenever possible to minimize your exposure to serious traffic.

-Generally your overall margins are higher due to not having to pay insurance, gas, parking and basic maintenance you will need to learn yourself. But your total revenues will be much lower, whether that trade off is worth it is up to you.

I wish you the best of luck out there, stay safe.

u/wakeup_andlive · 2 pointsr/30PlusSkinCare

When you say that you "have Stratia" I'm assuming that you mean the Liquid Gold, I think that's the most popular product and it's the first thing that I bought. I used it in place of my regular moisturizer and I was so happy with it that I wanted to try the rest of the products.

(Also, I am realizing that I sound like kind of an evangelist for Stratia -- so I have to say that I found out about the brand while lurking on reddit and reading skincare blogs, I paid full retail price for everything, and I have no sort of relationship with the brand or any of its employees. I'm a perfume blogger so I know how praise draws suspicion 😉)

My routine is adapted from this blog post that I linked above, which was written by the creator of Stratia. It's in a nice table format, and I found it easy to follow. But here's what I do:


  1. Wipe with micellar water (I use these disposable washcloths from Amazon for my face, a pack will last almost a whole year)
  2. Stratia C+C Serum - then brush my teeth, go get dressed, to let a few minutes pass
  3. Stratia Rewind (essence - niacinamide & DMAE)
  4. Stratia Fortify (oil - fatty acids)
  5. Stratia Liquid Gold (moisturizer - gift from the gods)
  6. Dr. Jart Cicapair Tiger Grass CC with SPF 30 (for sunscreen but it also has centella and other anti-inflammatories, and a nice color-correcting effect on the areas where I still have some redness)


  7. Heimish All-Clean Balm (oil based cleanser, removes makeup nicely too)
  8. Stratia Cleansing Milk (ETA - I rub this around a little bit very gently with the "chamomile" Konjac sponge)
  9. Even days Paula's Choice AHA/ Odd days CosRX BHA - then brush my teeth, let the dog out, etc. to let a few minutes pass
  10. Stratia Rewind (essence)
  11. Stratia Fortify (oil)
  12. Curology (a custom blend that they prescribe for you, it's an online service. Mine is Clindamycin 1%, Azelaic Acid 9%, and Tretinoin 0.009% - it was very easy to subscribe and I love that it's an all-in-one formulation. My derm said she can prescribe these things but honestly I'll probably stay with Curology because it's so convenient)
  13. Stratia Liquid Gold (two pumps) mixed with Cerave Healing Ointment (pea-sized)
u/sticky-bit · 2 pointsr/vandwellers

A classic from Eric the Car Guy for flushing your heater core.

(Edit to add:) He used CLR cleaner. No brand endorsement is meant by this link, I usually buy generic myself.

With the engine cold (cool), you can start it up with the hood open, heat and fan on, and then feel the heater hose to see if warming up properly. The engine should warm up, and start flowing warm water through the heater core circuit (which in a VW should probably be a really long hose to the front of the car)

If you never feel any heat, you may have low or no flow through the heater core.

OTOH, if your engine overall is just never really heating up (is your dash thermostat working?) I would instead suspect a stuck thermostatic valve in the cooling system.

In really really cold weather, some people cover parts of the engine radiator with a canvas cover. This is quite often done with diesels. This helps a bit with the cab heat too.

u/buckyball60 · 1 pointr/AskMen

Coffee filters work well if OP doesn't want to buy a proper cloth. Also, if you are often cleaning things with microfiber cloths that get really dirty, try out kimwipes. Disposable so you don't have to worry about re-depositing oils.

u/winterbourne · 1 pointr/Cooking

CLR. Also that's kind of nasty.

u/Khumpty · 1 pointr/Coffee

I'm on a well so I've been making my own water using this method for a while with success.

I keep this near my brewing station and get 5 gallons of distilled water from Whole Foods as needed. That costs $2 each time. The chemicals per 5 gallon are like $.10, I think, last time I did the math. It's a little work every few weeks, but I let one of my boys "play scientist" mixing it up. It also gives you the freedom to change your recipe.

The capsules seem convenient but you don't know what's in them and you're hamstrung to their recipe. At $1 per gallon it's also more expensive.

u/StriiderFloatz · 1 pointr/ElectricScooters

Assuming you are carrying multiple drinks, something like this bolted to a shelf in the back may work: Drink carrier tray I would think the drinks would be flat after a scooter ride though. Who orders drinks on DoorDash anyway? Durp.

The most useful tool for me is some lint-free KimWipes and pure isopropyl I grabbed from the lab! So easy to clean off electronics and old thermal paste. Wouldn't build a machine without these!

u/evwark · 1 pointr/Astronomy

Televue has a guide on eyepiece cleaning here. But the short answer is that a q-tip and alcohol should be fine, and so would pretty much anything else that you'd use for cleaning camera lenses.

Personally, I use a rocket blower to get rid of loose dust, and a lens pen for oils/fingerprints/whatever. When things get really bad, it's lens cleaning fluid from the camera store and Kimwipes (these guys don't leave lint behind like qtips/Kleenex do).

Don't know how narrow your space is. Something like this is typically a reasonable call. Most of them can be trimmed to fit (with a utility knife).

u/ExcessiveGravitas · 1 pointr/ploompax

I agree that end caps are the cheapest option, but if you spend a bit lot more this case is great for charging smell-free. Might be useful if you also want to carry the pax and some weed around with you at times.

u/BernoulliMagic · 1 pointr/DIY

I wasn't aware stackable toolboxes like those existed to be honest. However, I'm wondering if your father may better make use of a variety of different kinds of toolboxes/toolbags that would better fit his assortment. I've had a few dozen toolboxes that are great and all but there's really no sense of organization in a lot of the lower portion of those boxes. They're just that, a large box.

Now I don't know what you're looking to spend... but the very next (and likely last) toolbag I anticipate purchasing will be a Veto Pro Pac: You'll get loads of organization to further divide and compartmentalize stuff. Not to mention it'd be a heck of a lot easier to see and remember where particular items are located amongst a couple of bags which may be why he keeps them separated now?

Refilling can be done cleanly with the proper tools and time. Still, a cartridge requires little thought and effort. You should know however, they are more expensive, dry faster, and limited in terms of styles available.

I use Quink cartridges on the pen I keep at my desk for notes and such, but refil most of the ones I carry on me.

Tips for refilling cleanly:

  • Buy some cheap nitrile gloves and Kimwipes
  • Cover your surface or work on a non-porous surface.
  • Keep a small beaker/5ml of 70% isopropyl about. Never use a higher grade, or acetone as these will eat through the plastics, varnishes, etc.
  • Dip only as much of the pen tip is necessary to fill the cartridge, usually just the first half of the nib. When done, dip that same amount in the alcohol.
  • Wipe dry with a Kim-wipe.

    You might also try removing the cartridge from the pen when you refill. I just don't thing this is much easier or cleaner. For some cartridges you run the risk of dumping 10ml of ink around in the process. A small amount, that will spread far and be impossible to remove.

There is no such thing as a paper grabber grabber. Here are a bunch of similar products for a paper grabber, which is what that attempted murderer is using to try and pull down those posters, like he goes again to do at the very end of the video. Watch him reach up with it at the end to grab more shit at the very end of the video.

Do you see why I'm calling that theory farfetched? You're trying to defend every single aspect of this video and they can all be explained by "he was pissed that this pro democracy kid was getting in his grill about tearing that stuff down and literally tried to throw him off a bridge until he realized he was on camera"

I feel like with bottles, not all babies accept the same wipes, diapers, or diaper rash cream. What helped with our diaper rash was switching to Target diapers, dry wipes that you have to wet (Medline Baby Wipes ) and A+D zinc oxide diaper rash treatment. We would pay wipe and make sure his bum was completely dry. I haven’t switched these products/ technique since and he’s been good.

I know there are yeast infections as well, so make sure it’s not that.

Vinegar mostly but I love the Febreeze laundry detergent for extra pungent stuff - even campfire smoke in one wash.

For dust on the lens and prompter, use compressed air. Either from a can or from an air compressor (with a filter.) For anything that won't come off, a microfiber cloth on the prompter glass will do fine.

For the lenses, I would use Pancro and Kimtech wipes.

As long as you don't scrub the lenses you shouldn't damage the coatings.

If Iso doesn't work i usually go:
(this can be found @ the dollar tree)

Then (If need be):
Haven't used this brand, just acetone in general.

Lastly for hardwater/bloom:
(Publix/Walmart or any other basic market)

Is this what you are talking about? Its quite expensive for where I live.

I got my spanner from Amazon, maybe $20 and it's just fine, has ends that flip for pointed or flat-blade, no problems.

First, I'd go to and do a search for fungus, lens, cleaning, etc., try a few and there should be a lot of info. There are guys that suggest some particular hand lotion for really stuck fungus, sort of barely-abrasive.

On the RB lenses (and many others), you remove the logo ring first, the ring around the front element that says stuff like "90mm 2.8" and so on - you have to find a rubber stopper that fits, or press a rubber glove onto it with something. If you have a front ring without spanner holes, take it to the hardware store and look for a rubber sink stopper - or a "fernco", which is a short rubber tube with thick walls, used to join two pipes together - they usually have pipe clamps on the ends. (Fernco is a brand, they're "flexible plumbing adapters"). Just something that will press on the lens without hitting the glass. You push down hard on it (if necessary) and use it to get the ring loose, and then unscrew it. They're just a couple bucks.

In my case, the front element then lifted out, and the fungus was on the lens group under it, which (I think I recall) had a ring that needed the spanner. I took the element out, blew off any dust, and used a q-tip with peroxide - I'd try not to "soak" anything if possible. That took the spot of fungus off, and I then cleaned the element (I use ROR optical cleaner, but 99% isopropyl alcohol is a great lens cleaner. 99%, not the 80% grocery store stuff which has oils and additives). I can never get the last swirly marks off, so I use a pristine, clean microfiber cloth for a final polish. (By the way, Kim Wipes are an awesome thing to have handy for cleaning lenses and negatives). And use a rubber blower every step of the way, while the lens is open go ahead and get all the dust out.

When you finish cleaning and reassemble, cheap cotton gloves are really a big help - it's easy to get 90% done and spot a big fingerprint on some glass and have to take it back apart. I wear these when I sleeve negatives, spot prints, and frame and matte prints too, another must-have in my opinion.

You can disassemble a lens pretty completely, and if you start seeing lots of parts to remove, take lots of photos, draw a diagram, etc. I save all those tiny clear bags that parts and things come in, and put screws and parts from each step in them - tape them to a sheet of paper and label the paper, like, "step 3, lens group set screws" and make notes and sketches (that way you can reuse the bags).

Good luck, do a little research and take it slow - hope your fungus is an easy spot!

Hi NargleEater! Thanks for tip. :) I'm brewing in this "New Wave Enviro Porcelain Water Dispenser" from Amazon. It is advertised as "certified lead-free"; made in China.

I had previously purchased a glass continuous brewing vessel online but it broke in shipping. :-/ Where did you purchase your glass vessle? :)

For drying, I use these super-soft med cloths and they do an excellent job by themselves.

Buy some CLR it should get it out. They sell it nearly every where.

Many of my objects are cigarette butts on a sidewalk. So I worry I would not be able to stab enough to catch, or dull the tip. And then I would need to get the butt off the tip into my 5 gallon drum. I have one of these coming today, hoping for a light touch:

And then the items you pointed me to.

When I started, I was looking for 91% or 99% wipes and didn't have much luck. Today on Amazon I see 91% wipes: Box of 50 for $18. Ridiculous. Spray would work well, but I also like to feel the bed in case there are small bumps that need to be cleaned off.

I've settled on using: 91% iso alcohol (ultra cheap, from Walgreens or WalMart, probably), a push-down alcohol dispenser ($5, singe purchase), and Kimtech Wipes (also great for glasses, etc.) (280 wipes per box, 3 boxes for $8.40). Using this method, I actually use the Alcohol+wipes on lots of things.

I need to find a local source for 99% iso. The stuff online all feels expensive.

u/duckingcluttered · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Have you tried CLR? Supposed to be specifically for that sort of thing I think

u/lazd · 1 pointr/Multicopter

If you want to do it right, you can clean the extra flux off using isopropyl and KimWipes. If you don't, it won't hurt anything.

Here's some soldering porn that shows how to use KimWipes and isopropyl to clean flux.

I hope this inspires you to learn more! There are plenty of videos on YouTube that can teach you how to solder, I suggest you take your time to watch a handful of them. You'll be proud of your work and your flying machine will be more reliable.
