When detailing a sled for show or simply to clean it, many times it is handy to have a non-metal item for scraping purposes. This is when something like a Popsicle stick or a plastic blade works well. You can actually buy bags of clean Popsicle sticks at craft stores and even Wal-Mart, in the craft area (you can get someone to buy them for you so youâ€™re not seen in that area of the store).
For example, cleaning the crap out of the aluminum corners and crevices. Not big enough for a broom, not loose enough for a vacuum or blowing out. A screwdriver would damage or scratch it. This is when a wood or plastic tool is required.
