Keep Clean While You Work

When my cycling experience growth, i interested to try repaired and cleaned up my bike with my own. Started buying tools, read manuals and hand grab the hex key. Keep your tools, clothes and environment clean its a must since dirty tools, clothes and environment will turn your work messy, fail and get yourself a homework.

Below, its a few tips to make your work clean. Yes, it takes time..but that's a professional mechanics do.

1. Wear gloves, and pull fresh ones on frequently. Gloves are the simplest way to keep your hands clean, and a fresh pair is the best way to have contaminant-free for handling critical components.

2. Wearing an apron protects your clothes and offers useful stowage for often-used tools. When the job done, all you have to do is remove the apron and you’re clothes still clean.

3. Eliminate messy containers. The grease tub, oil bottles, and aerosol cans are the enemies here. Keep your grease tub and other containers clean and closed, and use a drain pan with a lid.

4. Wipe down your tools before you put them away. A clean rag will do the trick, but a rag misted with isopropyl alcohol will get those tools squeaky clean and residue free.

5. Sweep! Sweeping at the end of the day during cleanup is a given, but sweep before you start too. Dust can’t rise off a clean floor, and finding dropped objects is easier when there’s no clutter underfoot.

6. Paper towels and rags are like gauze in an operating room. Keep lots of the stuff handy. More absorbent materials like kitty litter help prevent spills from becoming much bigger messes.

Now, grab a towel and wash your body. After that, rewards yourself with sip of coffee or slice of cake. :D

Sometimes, I take my bike into a local shop to get the chain re-greased or some gear adjustments, and it always amazes me how dirty their repair staff is! Maybe the next time I am in there I will bring this blog post up on my phone and show them!
