View Full Version : Cleaning Pedals

Dec 17th, 2004, 10:21 AM
Anybody have any idea on what works best for cleaning the pedals?? I've tried spraying an all purpose cleaner and letting that sit, and that seems to work ok. But I was wondering if there was any special brush that works well for this. Is applying a dressing ok or would that be going overboard and make them too slippery??

My first question would be what kind of pedals are we working on? Plastic, rubber, alloy.

I have cleaned mine in the past using some general purpose cleaner and a medium density brush. I applied some #40 on them and let it sit until it had dried. Then gave them a good rubbing with a towel. I didn't find them to be slippery, but I would test before you drive.

The pedals are rubber. For the most part they're not too bad but I find that keeping up with them helps a lot. I was attempting to get some of the dirt out on my brother's car when I detailed it but it was a little tricky. Some all purpose cleaner and a little elbow grease usually does the trick. Just wasn't sure if there was a tool better suited for the job.

If they've got a lot of little crevices an old tooth brush might be the trick. Usually rubber pedals are just covers which you can remove also. This might make your life easier than laying down on the floor and trying to scrub them if they're that bad.

Starting in January sometime you can order one of these,

This is a very versatile brush in that it offers two different types of bristles for you to choose from. After the Special Presentation class last weekend I can already tell this is going to be a huge hit.
