Baby Oil okay for cleaning bearings?

Is baby oil ok for cleaning bearings?


#2

It will lube the bearing, not clean it. You need either mineral spirits, mineral turpentine, or acetone to clean a bearing, then lube it with oil, or, if it be your preference, don’t lube it and run it dry.

Use the post above for cleaning, What I use as yoyo lube is TRAXXIS 10W shock oil, google it or you could find it most of the time at a hobby store.

I use AE 10wt oil. Same thing, different brand.

That would work to, it is just about the same stuff.
