Hi I`m slowly getting my KM back to working. My question is can I use surgical spirit to clean it before I oil it ? If not then please what can I use instead thank you in advance ann
Welcome to the forum! Yes, surgical spirit (UK) is the same as rubbing alcohol in the US.Schnauzermom said:I have been reading up on cleaning a knitting machine as I have just bought a "pig in a poke" as they say here in the south. I bought a knitking machine with no information at all, but the price was too good to pass up. I'm sure it will need a good cleaning for starters. Is the spirits referred to the kind of alcohol I can buy at the drug store? I know that when this machine gets here I am going to need lots of help. I am so thankful I found such knowledgable people to talk to. I just hope that it will be something salvageable. Keeping my fingers crossed.
