Soot Removal Question Again
[Return to Topics]

As some of you know, had a small shop fire. Need to remove soot from hand tools, etc. Tried soap and water, no luck. Still leaves a film. Any suggestions?

walt, I searched on google for "soot removal" and there are a lot of links out there for specific brand name cleaners. Everything I saw said that you need to get all the soot you can off whatever you're tryin to clean first like with a vaccuum cleaner, held not touching the object. They say that soot has a greasy base to it and that you then must attack that. There are products just for soot removal supposed to be a any place that carries janitoral supplies.

If you want to try home cleaners, I believe I would try Greased Lightning first, full strength. One site said something about a solution containing borax, I believe.

None of the sites said anything about getting soot off of tools, they mostly talked about getting it out of carpet and off walls. Good luck!
