Description

Quick and easy! Less time spent cleaning! Save yourself some elbow grease and time with The Carboy Cleaner! 
 
The Carboy Cleaner is a stainless steel rod with two super absorbent, lint free, soft cleaning pads. High-strength, yet flexible plastic inserts inside the pads help keep the pads rigid during use. The expanding sponge at the end of the cleaning pad assists in the centrifugal cleaning force for tough soils. Attach to a cordless drill for high rpm use, insert into your carboy, and move up and down to let the Carboy Cleaner do the rest!  
 
Works with any size carboy between 3 and 6 gallons.  Equally safe and effective on glass and PET Carboys. Comes with small size bung for glass carboys. Medium size bung for PET carboys can be purchased separately (FE470).  Also works great for 5 gallon kegs!
 
Compatible with carboys up to 32 cm / 12.6 inches in diameter.

Many of my car boys have some residual in them after soaking and cleaning. So I thought this might be a quick way to remove those residuals.

Great product! Great value!
What a timesaver! Iused to struggle getting carboys and kegs cleaned. now in a matter of a minute or two it’s done. This is one of the best values I’ve seen.

Worked well
Works much better than the old brush. Felt like it got the film off of the sides, and got it nice and clean. It is a bit of a challenge to get it into the cleaner, but once in, it does the job well.

Carboy Cleaner
Carboy cleaner works awesome!!! So much better than a carboy brush!!! Just use the low setting on your cordless drill.

Works great once broken in
The main problem with the tool is that it is hard to get in an out of the carboy at first. And, it needs to be broken in (say, use 3 times). Like the large scrubbers in an automatic car wash, they need to soften up a bit and then it works great. Don't be shy on using elbow grease with the drill.

Adequate but disappointing
The neck of some carboys are too narrow to fit the cleaner through and the screw/nut is not adjustable to make it slightly shorter. Getting it in & out of the carboy is really hard at first, but after I crunched the cleaning pads really hard with a pliers, it's much easier. The cork that comes with it to minimize vibration is useless - much better to use a rag or a sponge. Laying the carboy on it's side is the trick, works much better that way, just be sure to use a towel or a doorstop to keep the carboy from rolling off the counter. By moving the drill up and down, and changing direction, I was able to get all the way up into the shoulders and clean the carboy. If the manufacturer could shorten the screw, soften the structure in the brushes but perhaps make the fabric more aggressive, and provide a better cork/closure, this product would be great.

Good cleaning tool
This tool puts the finishing touch on cleaning the carboy. I brush the carboy first to get the heavy deposits off. The problems I see with the tool is that it is hard to get in an out of the carboy. My biggest concern is that if I can not get both of cleaning pads to be symmetrically opposite one another, it sets up a vibration problem and I am afraid it could damage the glass carboy.

Works well
Kicks all the gunk loose if used soon after siphoning. A definite step up from the normal carboy brush.

Works great on Better Bottles
I tested this out on an old better bottle before using it on my new units. I hit it pretty aggressively and checked for scratches after it dried.

Worked great, is going to save a ton of time and water not having to soak the better bottles full of cleaner to get the krausen that stuck on.

Easy Carboy and Keg Cleaning
This product works very well. The two arms don't always extend opposite of each other. You can tell by the amount of wobbling. You may have to stop and start several times to get them to fly right. It is difficult to get to the crud at the top of the carboy. It can be done if you operate at a much slower speed. A quick swipe with a carboy brush prior to cleaner solves that problem.

Un-satisfactory
I bought this with high hopes of never using "THE BRUSH" again. It didn't touch the crusted part above the water line PBW didn't help even with 15 minute wait. I keep it till the next dirty carboy and same thing. PBW a plug a soak overnight and the stuff falls off so what good is this cleaner? Also had problems getting the ends to go to opposite sides but that was a small issue that anyone would deal with if it actually cleaned the hard part of the job. Back to brush to get the big crud out and soak overnight! Zero star rating, it forced me to click a star or refused submission, sorry good guys get a marginal product.
