Topic tags/keywords: tip question sharpening

Hi,
I have a set of HF diamond knife sharpeners. Some of them are getting clogged up and I am wondering if there is a way to clean them. I tried carburetor cleaner but it didn’t work. I think it needs to soak in something for while. Any ideas? Thanks

I use the EZE-LAP paddles. Clean ‘em with Simple Green after every use.

Simple green solution and a brush.

I use Bar Keeper’s Friend powder, and an old kitchen scrub sponge. Leaves my Atoma plate nice and shinny.

This is what I use, as well. Nylon brush so as not to damage the stones.

Old toothbrush and water, sometimes a bit of degreaser.

Wow.. Never thought of just regular house detergents. Thank you. I may slip them in my work clothes and have my better half wash them in the washing machine. I will for sure use your advise. Thank you.

I do the same as djwong. Bar Keeper’s Friend powder, and an old toothbrush is the best method that I’ve found.
