    What can be used to agitate dirt/grease in tight corners under the hood?

    Using a q-tip kind of works. I feel like if there was something like a really small brush with strong bristles on its head rather than its sides that would be perfect.

    It sounds like the tiny brush to clean your brothers electric shaving heads would work.
    I think his will work better than yours or mine.

    I have a couple of these for interior use... might not be as stiff as you want, but maybe.

    Paint brush with the bristles cut short.

    I had some good results with the quilted cotton squares and the qtips. Surprisingly, the wedges weren't as useful. I found them too squishy to move stuck on elements off but they were good for absorbing liquids. The cotton squares were also surprisingly good for absorbing liquids in tight spaces.

    I just sprayed my cleaner and then agitated and then I put the squares down in the area and they picked up a good amount of released gunk.
