Holy apples... $200 bit wipes?!

http://www.amazon.com/Horse-Armour-Amour-Bit-Wipes/dp/B002HRRGXS/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1328902588&sr=8-2
I went on their website and apparently they say the flavoring values at $129 a gallon... who would spend that much on a throw away thing?!

And I thought $15 was expensive!

I never even knew there was such a thing as "bit wipes"- I've always just used a a warm, clean towel. Is that bad for some reason?

No(: Some people just like bit wipes because they're flavored & convenient

Interesting...that is my new fact for the day. I have never heard of such a thing, but next time I'm searching my car for a clean rag to wipe off the bit, I guess I'll be wishing I had these! :)

Nope not at all. It's just more convenient and cleaner for my lessees.. if I just leave them towels, they probably wouldn't get washed or put away. This insures they can use and toss away without me worrying.

We just have a thing of bit sponges next to a bucket of water. The water gets dumped every day and fresh water is added, and the sponges are used strictly for bits. They get washed out every day with soap and water. This has never been an issue to use just this!
