Lucas Contact Cleaner's quick-drying formula removes oil, dirt, and debris from contact points on metals and elastomers without leaving behind any residue. If you maintenance your own vehicle or motorcycle, chances are you know the all-purpose nature of Contact Cleaner. But you might not be aware of some of Lucas Contact Cleaner’s niftier applications. Enjoy these five Contact Cleaner Life Hacks, from a couple of roadies who have come to rely on this universal product in a pinch!
1. Pressure washer or lawn mower been sitting? Use Lucas Contact Cleaner to bring it back to life! Over time, the sludge and debris that builds up on your engine’s carburetor interferes with the mixing of fuel and air. Remove your air filter and spray Lucas Contact Cleaner into the air port in a series of quick sprays while you attempt to fire it up.
2. Kid fell off the honor roll wagon? Gotta get rid of that sticker, and nobody wants leftover sticker residue to remind you of his fall from grace. Basic solvents might appear to do the trick, but within days the buildup of dust will reveal the residue that still lurks. Spray onto rag and rub across sticker residue to remove any remnants, and start fresh!
3. Need a flame thrower? Party trick? Lost in the wilderness? Okay, so don’t try this at home. But there are times when you legitimately need to start a fire, and Contact Cleaner, used responsibly, is just the guy for the trick. Lucas Aerosol Contact Cleaner is extremely flammable, so spray only a small amount onto your kindling before igniting.
4. Accidentally took a sharpie marker to a white board? Light duty solvents won’t do the trick. Save yourself the time and trouble of heavy scrubbing. Just apply Lucas Contact Cleaner to a rag and rub directly onto the white board surface. Reapply as needed until all traces of your silly mistake are gone forever!
5. Got an oil spill on your driveway? Spray with Contact Cleaner. Let sit for 5-10 minutes. Then scrub with a stiff brush and rinse with high pressure. Repeat as necessary.
