    I know sandpaper works best but any kind of tool you can use in its place

    sandpaper and plumbers cloth are the worst as they leave grit. Scotchbrite pads or wire brushes are best

    I cut the plastic or wooden handle off the brush and chuck the remaining part into a drill. Makes cleaning the inside of fittings fast and easy...
    I came into this world with nothing, I still have most of it left....

    When working on Copper I use "Copper-Brite" wipe it on, wipe off the schmootz.

    "power douce" is a product you can pickup at supply houses here in ohio. It's a 1/4" chuck attached to a inside/outside brush, with a slidable head allowing you to change from inside to outside very quickly. Also having it on a drill speeds up the process ALOT.

    looks like that only has a chuck on end. the white part slides down the chuck to let you switch between inside or outside.
