rope cleaning with a twist 24-Jul-2009 At 8:30:08 AM surfinclimb
I know that there are previous threads about this but my work ropes are FILTHY and there are 5 of them.
I got thinking of alternatives to hand washing.
1 home washing machine: NO the wife will kill me.
2 Industrial washing machine: NO for some water saving reason it put about 3 inches of water in the bottom and the ropes didn't even get wet.
3 Take it to the car wash, daisy chain and pressure wash it.
4 Use the soap scrubber at the car wash and use that first before the pressure washer to get it real clean.
I'm a bit concerned that pressure washing might push the dirt from the sheath into the core. I also dont know the P.H of the soap in the car wash so I'm a bit worried about damaging the rope. The flip side with the soap question is that with this litigious society no company would be stupid enough to use aggresive soaps for fear of hurting someones hands or expensive paint job. Any ideas
