    steam clean and ultrasonic cleaners

    I like to super clean parts that are reused on projects mostly using hand cleaning 'varsol' and brake cleaner (by the case) applications.

    Appreciate recommendations from folks who do their own work as to steam cleaning bigger parts and use of ultra sonic cleaners for smaller parts, local providers and experiences, thanks......Malcolm

    Hey Malcolm, I don't know of any local places.
    I have a small ultrasonic cleaner I use for jewellery, metal watch bands, etc.

    I have 2 steam cleaners I've used on some car stuff: removing ppf, grimey fingerprints on headliner, light grime on suspension parts, etc

    1 is a small commercial unit that isn't sold anymore & the other one I got off amazon.

    the smaller parts would be nuts, bolts, springs, smaller metal components etc from car or mcycle projects i may be rebuilding. for the steam cleaner i was looking at larger parts that require degrease like oil filter housings, swing arms, frames etc.
    thinking that these non toxic cleaners are more usable in family garage and some maintenance of marital bliss during these strange times of pandemic.

    thanks Yoon, i looked at Amazon for pricing then had thoughts of local sourcing or even rental of industrial steam cleaners.
