    Default HOW TO: Tank clean out tool #2

    I just wanted to share how I cleaned my tank, give people some options, worked really well for me.
    got the idea from a bong cleaning tool.
    here is a list of tools

    : ]hot glue gun](super glue, Elmer's might work or anything of this nature)
    (note, use something that can hold well, but you could clean up with a blade)

    : Sandpaper of you liking ( I noticed 100+ worked well )

    : scissors

    :two small heavy magnets (the stronger the better)

    : clean sock( shop rag works well too)

    : Pen
    gun
    materials

    Step one, draw the outline of both sides of the magnet on the sandpaper
    lines
    Step two, cut
    cut
    Step three, glue that sandpaper to BOTH sides of the magnet
    glue
    Step four, drop the sandpaper magnet into the drained tank
    (I already did this, which is why my tank is installed on the bike in the photos
    drop
    Step five, drop the other magnet in the sock
    sock
    And now the fun part
    Step, six find the magnets and get to scrubbing. ( might have to replace sandpaper at some point if not satisfied, I replaced the paper 3 times)

    scrub
    find

    Default keep it simple!

    this is an easily made tool with stuff most people have laying around the house.
    no, welding, soldering or shaking your tank like you're some kind of mix-o-logist at brunch.
    this is as simple as it gets.!!

    If it where me, I'd just lower the sock with the magnet in it down into the tank, give the tank a gentle shake to get the magnets to stick to each other and pull the sock out again (never really letting go of the sock). But maybe there's an easier way?

    That's right on dude, thats the easiest way to get it out. @stabler
    I just turn the tank upside down got it as close to the cap opening as possible and fingered it out.
    But I bet #Stabler has the better light on that one, thanks.
    I forgot to put that step in didn't I haha.
    @armand keeping things in check
    @TheWhiteDevil , lol, hey if they don't find you handsome at least they'll find you handy with this one!!
