Cleaning up post harvest. I am using rubbing alcohol and rags/paper towels but the sticky ain’t budging off my trimming tools. Anyone got a better way?
I use grain alcohol. makes it a little easier… use $paringly…
I use 70% Isopropanol alcohol in a jar with a sponge in it place the shears in and let it soak for awhile.
I use alchohol and a green scratch pad. Once you break the surface it comes right off.
You can also put your tools in boiling water to clean them.
This is the best stuff that I have found. It will easily remove the sticky from tools and fingers both. I picked it up from a local grow shop.
I let my snips sit in rubbing alcohol for a while then strip gunk with a paper towel. Grain alcohol may be stronger. I checked out prices and the SOS is a little bit on the high side if you look up Everclear grain alcohol and compare.
I’ve also used citrus products sort of like Goof Off, and they work.
I can’t remember what I paid for the SOS, since it was a couple years ago. But I do know a little goes a long way. The bottle is still well over half full.
Scrape it and save that sticky yummy
I find the same is true with bowl cleaners also. For years the wife and I cleaned our bowls with alcohol or salt water, until we bought our first bottle of Randy’s Black Label. It was impossible to go back to that peasant lifestyle and use alcohol afterwards. Randy’s was so easy and less messy.
After all, growing our own weed make buying these little things a lot more affordable and enjoyable.
@beachglass, Of course I scrape my fingers and tools, and then roll this into balls that I put it in the clean bowl.
The really tricky part is too remember to handle the buds with one hand and the tools with the other. Once you start handing the buds with both hands you need to clean up and start over.
