Question bomb swab bust?

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?

Well you can only clean it so hard before you destroy it. Try wrapping it in something and putting it in the washer.

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.

try running boiling/steaming hot water out of the tap over it then drying with a wash cloth always works amazing for me

Ive washed my bomb swabs so many times, just throw them in with the rest of my gear on a warm wash/cold rinse cycle. The only important thing is to hang dry them. Mine still look new after 2 years
