Soak parts in white vinegar for a few hours I even tried the toilet cleaner the works be careful not to leave in to long will take off more than the green. Noxon and a tooth brush. I would use Penn Rod and Reel Cleaner and a tooth brush.

Also, how do I clean the green off my fishing reel?

i would probably take the reel apart and take just the parts with verdigris (which is the green corrosion you see), and soak them in a solution of straight simple green or a mix of about 3:2 of simple green. Then after letting it soak over night if it doesnt sluff right off a toothbrush would probably get the rest.

One may also ask, how do you remove green corrosion from metal? Vinegar is for battery green goop. Actually, the green goop (copper oxide which is relesed from the brass) will dissolve a bit with white vinegar (tried it) then follow up with Flitz which will knock it out entirely. Flitz will also leave a protective sheen that helps prevent further oxidation on the areas treated.

Can fishing reels get wet?

Fishing rods will not get harmed by dropping into a river. However, fishing reels are a different story. When you accidentally drop it off on the water or when it gets wet, then you should rinse it with clean water. Remove the side plate for a baitcasting roll to reveal the inner workings.

How do you get old grease off a fishing reel?

It is absolutely safe for plastic parts. I mix it 50/50 with water and soak the parts,sometimes as long as a couple of days, depending on how old and dried up the gunk is. If the parts are REALLY gunked up, start with warm water. Then a good scrub with an old toothbrush will remove most of the caked-on grease and dirt.

How do you take apart a fishing reel?

  1. Hold the spinning reel so the spool faces up.
  2. Grab the knob on top of the spool, which holds the spool to the reel. On some reels, this knob also controls the drag system. Turn the knob counterclockwise to loosen it.
  3. Pull the knob off the reel when you can.
  4. Grab the spool and pull it straight up and off the reel.
