Question by Mister Wilbo: What do you use to clean a skateboard?
What do you use to clean the deck?
The bearings? The wheels?
How often should you do this?
Answer by mrsfaithsalas
Clean off mud and dirt with a simple damp rag, and use a soft bristle brush, if necessary. And check on your bearings. Usually, when they’re dusty, you can hear it.
Dirty bearings will add friction to your ride.
Here’s a website that tells you how to take apart ur bearings and clean them step by step, w/ pictures & video!
once you remove the bearings from the wheel,you need to soak the wheels in hot water containing dish washing soap. This helps break down the rust. Take them out after about 30 min. or so, then cover the stains in toothpast. Go grab an old toothbrush,rag, or a counter top scruber.Start scrubbing using alot of strength/pressure and keepin scrubing and adding on toothpaste until it is clean.
i’d say as often as you like, if you can put it away clean so that stuff doesn’t build up. but i think when they look dirty would be good enough. 🙂

a high of 94F [34.444] on my deck today; currently 85 [29.4C] in my bedroom.
it was cooler yesterday, but when leon went out to work this morning, zowie! hot time.
so I decided to clean my room, all the window grooves, the nicknacks dusted and the wood oiled.
I still didn’t get anywhere near finished.
