Bit Polish

I'm needing to clean my bit. What's a good bit polish?

Well rinsed soap and water, nothing toxic. Vinegar or baking soda is ok, or toothpaste.

I never polish my bits for the fear of the polish being toxic. I just use soap and water, scrub and rinse thoroughly.

Tooth paste, not gel, good old fashioned paste, also good for cleaning silver BTW

Baking soda, water and elbow grease. Scrubby pad if it's really bad. Rinse well, dry well. Have fun. will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. ... Explore. Dream. Discover.”

I use toothpaste. It gets them clean and the horses are normally quite happy with the minty flavor left behind.
