And I Was Having Such Good Results With Clorox And Ammonia

Cleaning your casting reel.

Clean off the existing buildup including old lubricant and organic materials like salt crystals and marine life residue. Use a heavy-duty cleaner like Reel Saver cleaner and a cotton swab to free material from metal surfaces.

Soap and water is popular, but it will not get out heavy buildup and it can leave a residue. Reel Saver cleaner emulsifies organics very well and is safe to use on delicate reel components.

i'm guilty. i've been using warm water and soap for years, but have yet to have any build-up or residue. this reel-saver product is new to me. i may try some and bring it down in the fall. at least we will have something to other than drink while we wait for the evening fishing trolly to carry us to the point.
