i got my bomb swab in and thought ok great something that wont shed and will clean well.
first thing i did was run it through a couple of freak inserts i got in the mail, one of them had old paint in it, now the tip of my swab is sticky and it wont come out, i tried running some watter over the tip to loosen up the paint but now the swab is shedding... how do i clean this thing?
Really the only way to find out is to do it. I have had some crappy barrel swabs from Wal-mart and I put them in the washer, The end result was that the glue holding the cloth on evaporated or something. What I mean is that the cloth would not stay on the wood anymore.
