Now that you are ready to regularly clean your Snuff boards, you must know the necessary tools and supplies. You can achieve better results if you use good quality, industry-recommended tools. Here’s a list of some tools that can help clean snuff boards.
Soft Brush: These are essential for gently removing loose particles and residuals from the surface of snuff boards. When you use soft brushes, it’s necessary to gently sweep away the debris. You must ensure you do not scratch or damage the board’s material. You know the brush is soft, but if you put pressure that is not gentle enough, you can quickly leave fine scratches on the board’s surface.
Microfiber Cloths: Using a regular towel is terrible as the material is not soft. We highly recommend using a microfiber cloth that gently wipes the surface without leaving lint or scratches. To do this, dampen the microfiber cloth with a suitable cleaning solution and wipe the board.
Cotton Swabs: Microfibre cloth is good enough when you want to clean the overall surface of the snuff board; however, when it comes to cleaning the inner crevices and intricate details of the board, you will need cotton swabs. Yes, these small cotton swabs can be used to clean that area of the board, which may be hard to access with microfiber cloth. Dampen the Cotton swab with a cleaning solution to spot clean hard-to-reach areas with extreme precision.
Shammy Cloth: Now that you know how to clean the surface of your snuff board, it’s essential to understand how to polish it. You can use a shammy cloth to attain glittery Shine on your snuff boards. This type of clothing is a perforated fabric used for polishing glass windows, jewellery and other shiny items, including snuff boards. A soft, shammy cloth is excellent for drying and polishing the board after cleaning. Gently wipe the board with the shammy cloth for a smooth and polished finish.
Rubbing Alcohol or Isopropyl Wipes: It is well-known that alcohol based cleaners help break down and remove sticky residues such as tar and resins without harming the board. You can use alcohol or isopropyl wipes to clean the stubborn residue on your snuff board. As a matter of fact, many enthusiasts keep these wipes handy whenever they carry the board. It’s a good habit to wipe the area clean after using it.
Soft Toothbrush: While we discussed regular brush usage in this blog post, you can also use a soft toothbrush. The usage of a soft brush and a soft toothbrush is very different. You can use a soft toothbrush for cleaning those parts of the boards that have grooves and lines. A toothbrush is also helpful in removing sticky tar from the board.
Natural Cleaning Solutions: You can easily make a snuff board cleaning solution at home. Add some soap to clean drinking water. You can also use vinegar in the place of soap. This solution can be used with a microfiber cloth to clean the surface. Remember to use only a little soap in the solution. Using soap in a bigger quality can make it hard to remove the foam from the surface and leave stubborn patches on the board. The water you use for the solution should be drinking water with low TDS. You can use RO or bottled water. Hard water tends to damage glass and acrylic surfaces.
Know The Proper Way Of Cleaning Snuff Board
Proper cleaning of your Snuff board requires you to focus. You know that snuff boards are fragile, and cleaning them without complete focus may result in accidental damage, which you don’t want.
Put a towel on the table, and then on top of it, put on your snuff board. Turn on a lamp that directly focuses on the snuff board so that you can see the dust particles clearly. Take a dry microfiber cloth and clean the surface of the board. This will remove dust particles from the board.
You can use a soft brush or a toothbrush to remove hard-to-clean residues on the board. Once it is done, it’s time for you to apply some cleaning solution. You must dampen the microfiber cloth with a cleaning solution or use an alcohol swab, apply it on the board’s surface, and gently wipe it. You can do it more than once, but don’t overdo it.
Let the surface dry for about 3 or 4 minutes, and after that, take a shammy cloth and wipe the surface to remove any leftovers. That’s it. You have cleaned your Snuff board.
Remember that the cleaning solution may differ depending on the material used in your board. For example, you should avoid using soap solution on boards which are made of wood. For boards made of metal, it’s better to use alcohol-based solutions rather than a water-based solution. For acrylic boards water based solution is fine.
Prevention Is Better The Cure For Snuff Boards
Now that you know how to clean your board. You should also take preventive measures which reduce accidental damages. It will be a good step if you care about adequately storing the board, which minimises wear and tear. You can buy pouches made of soft cloth and other soft materials that will help protect the board’s shine and strength for a long time.
If you are an enthusiast and have multiple snuff boards then it’s a good idea to regularly inspect them. Just open the pouches and look at these boards to see if they require any cleaning.
