Tired of dirty, greasy chains? This handy gadget is for you!

Step 1: Gather Your Supplies.

1. 2 toothbrushes

2. roll of duct tape

Step 2: Tape the Toothbrushes Together.

Step 3: Happy Cleaning!

Use a gentle soap solution to remove grease.

<p>Looks like a great way to re-use old toothbrushes, too!</p>
<p>&iexcl;Genial Gracias por la idea!</p>
<p>Simple but usefull. For great result, use hard-type brush</p>
<p>Great idea! I'm going to use this. I simply have something for the last item (sentence). I'd advise to never use any soap on your chain. Along with water, it is a solvent and solvents displace the lubricate that is supposed to be in the chain. Instead, clean it with clean bicycle chain oil.</p>
<p>Simply Brilliant. I've been struggling to find something to clean my chain's both sides. Awesome. </p>
<p>cool</p>
<p>Полная фигня. Чистить чистую цепь. Грязную, в старой смазке и песке так не вычистить. </p>
<p>I translated your comment and it sounds like it worked well for you. I'm so glad! Thank you!</p><p>I translated my reply back into your language using Google Translator, but I'm not sure how accurate it is:</p><p>Я перевел свой комментарий и это звучит как он работал хорошо для вас.</p><p>Я так рада! Спасибо!</p>
<p>I took your idea back to the bathroom mirror. Now I can simultaneously brush my teeth front and back; done in half the time :).</p>
<p>Cool!</p>
You could also attach it to your bike somehow so it cleans as you go lol
<p>Really awesome idea!</p>
<p>That is brilliant......nice job</p>
<p>Brilliant!</p>
<p>Love it - I am thinking of making two one to clean the chain and a second with the bristles facing outwards then I can brush top and bottom at the same time and get out on my bike quicker!!</p>
Cool
<p>We used to do something similar as kids, and it works very well. I would say to watch out for the bristles that fall out during cleaning though, they can sometimes catch in the chain and jam it a bit.</p>
Nice! Cool hack!
Thanks!
<p>Nice hack!</p>
Thanks! :)
<p>wouldn't that remove the lubrication on your chain </p>
<p>It might, but once it was clean and dry you could re-lubricate it with something like White Lightning lubricant. This really is designed for a very dirty chain. </p>
