How to Clean Your Fidget Spinner
You will need to first remove, from the center bearing, the bearing caps. Usually these will be "press-fitted" into the center bearing. You might want to use a credit card or a flat screwdriver to remove it.
Clean the center bearing by running warm to hot water. The hotter the water the more the oil/lubricant residue will come off.
Using your fingers to make the suds, dollop a small amount of dish soap onto them.
Very carefully you will want to get the entire spinner spinning and work the suds into the center bearing. Then spin it for about a minute - making sure to very your direction of spin and your speed. This is important to remove any of the oil/lubrication that might be clinging onto the bearing.
Now with lukewarm water, rinse your spinner thoroughly. Use the same technique of alternating direction of the spin and the speed of the spin, until it is completely rinsed.
It is greatly recommend to add just a drop of rubbing alcohol. This will help dry out any moisture that gets left behind.
Without touching the actual bearings, use a microfiber towel to dry off your spinner. Make sure it is lint free!
Last step, using a hair dryer (recommended) or the can of compressed air, dry the spinner completely. Put your spinner back together and enjoy!
[WARNING: The propellant used in compressed air cans is extremely dangerous. Keep compressed air cans away from children.]
Make it a great one!
