I just this week found a better way to clean my bearings

I bought a product that's sold for cleaning bike (motor bike or bicycle) chains - it smells like it's isopropyl alcohol based & evaporates real quick after application, I got it from my local Lidl.

It made my bearings free-spin a lot faster and quieter than any other substance I've used (more crud evident on the newspaper I use to tap the bearings on too).

I also got a can of ptfe-based lube and will let you know how that works after I've skated the bearings

I guess the guys recommending Isopropyl alcohol were right

Now with added Daughter!
