Clean out and removing machine oil

Recommended Posts

I am having a canister part modified which requires drilling and taping. It is going to require some machine oil. I was just wondering what is the best way to clean out and remove any residue oil from a part before you hook it up to the system?

Thanks guys. I'll give that a try. I don't expect a heavy coating, mainly a thin residue from a lubricated drill or tap.

Dawn is the most gentle product there is and that is what they use to help clean up animals after an oil spill.  Where I don't recommend getting it in your tank if at all possible it is the one thing that if a little got in you would probably be ok.

I gave Dawn a try and it worked well with no side affects. I would definitely recommend it for this type of problem.

LOL, my wife had continual little burn marks on the back of her arms.  She'd be scraping algae and put her arm in the tank for one thing or another and our ocellaris would attack.  It would make her jump and she'd burn herself on the metal halides.  Almost every single time.  Think she'd either be prepared for it and not jump, or learn to stay away from the anemone it was hosted in.

I had a pair of ocellaris that would attack me no matter where in the tank I was. I just got used to it but the first time every time I went in the tank still made me jump a little. Now I have bicinctus which are clarkii off shoots which are supposed to be vicious and they hide. Go figure
