Rigel Recommends a Cleaning Technique Using Its Angle BrushesTM

Los Angeles, CA -- Rigel Products has recommended for years to use its Angle
BrushTM behind a swab to press the swab into channels or tight spots.  When
pressed against a gun’s surface, an Angle BrushTM puts more pressure than when
pressing fabric with finger tips directly.  The increased pressure means fabric
pressed by an Angle BrushTM picks up more grime.
When a dental-style pick is pressed into fabric, the single sharp tip pokes through
the fabric, and only a tiny portion of fabric is pressed into the space to be cleaned.  
On the other hand, the many bristle tips at the head of an Angle BrushTM press
evenly over a portion of fabric that is large enough to do noticeable cleaning.  For a
comparison example, the bristles of a small stem Angle BrushTM, having a stem
diameter at 1/16-inch, do not poke through fabric easily as would a dental-style pick,
and it means more fabric is pressed onto the surface to be cleaned.  The number of
bristle tips in a small 1/16-head brush is about 30.

The medium and large stem Angle BrushesTM, at 1/8-inch and ¼-inch diameters,
are used to press larger portions of fabric onto a dirty surface.  When the combo of
Angle BrushTM covered with fabric is pressed into a cavity or pushed along a
surface, it cleans large areas of surface quickly.  It means the Angle BrushTM falls
under Rigel’s Cleaner FasterTM line.  A large ¼-head is about 200 bristle tips.
