I’ve noticed the bearing seat on my yoyo has gotten dirty. I tried cleaning by alternative sweeps with a wet q-tip and then a dry q-tip and that seemed to get most of the dust and dirt out of there that was getting clogged in my bearings. So I was wondering if there are ways to better clean the bearing seat?
If you keep your bearings clean, I would assume that you would have a clean bearing seat.
Common solvents used to clean bearings, such as lighter fluid or mineral spirits can be used on a q-tip to clean the bearing seat if need be.
Note, as pointed out below, don’t use acetone on plastic yoyos.
q tip and rubbing alcohol is what i usually use. sometimes acetone if im already cleaning my bearings
Just DON’T use acetone on the bearing seat of a plastic throw.
Rubbing alcohol is probably fine though.
Good lookin out
Zippo lighter fluid never melt any plastic in my case, other solvent like certain thinner and carburator cleaner are really harsh though. Gasoline melts yyf loop900 plastic spacer.
