Case cleaner questions

I have a case cleaner that I inherited from my father. I believe it is from Midway. It has a red colored media in it. I'm not sure what it is.

Anyway, once the cases have been in there awhile, I am unsure what the best method for removing the red dusty film that is on each case.

The cases seem to clean up real well but that dusty film is a pain wiping off of each case.

Any tips?

I am really unfamiliar with this aspect of reloading.

Re: Case cleaner questions

Put a little bit of the liquid case polisher in with your media. That will keep the dust off the cases. Plus it will really make them shine. Tom.

Re: Case cleaner questions

Try corn- does not leave the dusty film-

but...I really like the trick Jim stemler suggested, I will try that when I change back over to the walnut media- I have never heard using a dryer sheet.

Re: Case cleaner questions

As been posted, a litle liquid polisher and a dryer sheet is the way to go.

Re: Case cleaner questions

I'm using corn with brass polish.No dust.Does walnut work better than corn for actual cleaning not considering the dust?

Re: Case cleaner questions

Crushed walnut is a better cleaner than corn cob. Corn cob does a better job of polishing.

I prefer crushed walnut and add some liquid Iosso case cleaner. Makes the cases come out nice and shiny, and keeps the dust down.

The dust won't hurt anything.

Re: Case cleaner questions

For under 5.00 you can get walnut rodent bedding at most pet stores. The red powder is polishing rouge and you don't really need it. Remember that old media is filled with some toxins so wash your hands after cleaning out you bowl.
