HOW TO CLEAN RIMMED BASKETS

Using the wrong method to clean your rimmed basket can damage your glassware, so it’s important to understand the best way to wash this essential bar tool.

We talked to Ian McLaughlin of Gather in Berkeley, CA, and James Moisey of Brooklyn’s Clover Club, who both gave us their tips for keeping this glassware sparkling. Here’s what they said:

CLEANING RIMS: THE RIGHT WAY

The first thing you need to know is that it’s important to be gentle when cleaning a rimmed basket. You never want to scrub or scrape off the sugar that has built up on the rim, as this will dull the appearance of your glassware over time. And if you’re using a commercial dishwasher, make sure you’re using a low-temperature setting. High heat can cause sugar residue to melt into the glass and etch it over time. If you’re washing by hand, make sure the water is lukewarm at most; hot water could also cause sugar to melt into the glass and etch it over time.

First things first: scrape off any excess sugar that has built up on the rim. Then place your rimmed baskets in a sink

The easiest way to clean your rimmed basket is to use a bottle brush and a little warm water. All you need to do is remove the basket from the sink, spray it with water, scrub with the brush and rinse. This will dislodge all food debris from the basket.

I’ve tried a lot of things to clean my rims. The best way I’ve found is with a sink full of soapy water and a toothbrush.

You can use Dawn or some other dish soap, but it seems to work just as well without any soap at all. Just fill the sink with hot water, dunk your rimmed basket in it, and get scrubbing with the toothbrush. Rinse it out and you’re good to go!

You can also use this technique to clean the back of your portafilter, if you use one of those.

Do you use dish soap, water and a rag to clean your rims? Do you think it is the best way to clean your rims? Are you wrong?

I have found that a mixture of muratic acid and water is the best way to get all of that nasty brake dust off of your wheels. I will even go as far as saying that it is the only way to truly clean your rims. It is cheap, readily available and easy to apply.

I first heard about using muratic acid (hydrochloric acid) from [this video](https://youtu.be/m0-UI4Q4f_A). The video does a much better job at explaining how to do this than I can. But basically you purchase the muratic acid from a local hardware store. Then mix 1 part muratic acid with 10 parts water in a spray bottle. Spray onto the rim and let sit for 5 minutes or more and then rinse with water.

You can also apply it straight onto the rim and then scrub with an old toothbrush or rag but I find spraying works just as well and is easier. And be sure to wear rubber gloves when doing this because if it gets on your skin it will burn you

Once upon a time, I used a chamois to clean my rims. Then I discovered what you might call “real” rim cleaners: products like inliner cleaner, gutter cleaner, and other household chemicals that you’re not supposed to use on your car. These products are great for doing the job they’re designed for, but they are too harsh for the more sensitive and expensive finishes of racing rims.

Some people have even been known to use Simple Green on their wheels. Simple Green is a pretty powerful degreaser, which means it’s strong enough to strip off layers of paint and clear coat.

If you want to protect your investment and keep your wheels looking shiny and new, be sure to use a product that is safe for all wheel finishes.
