figured id attempt to start a club... q-tip club

I was detailing my jeep today and i actually used a q-tip in some places.
with mothers mag and aluminum polish in my throttle body
around some lines and parts of the motor
with armor-all on the door handles.

i really got out of hand when i detailed my car today

i have a decent guess that i might be the only one in this club,

but if not, call me #1.

I used stiff bristle tooth brush and degreaser to clean my engine. Does that count?

if it requires a q-tip to clean it's not worth it... besides, it's just gonna get dirty the next wheeling trip...

I did this til I realized you can just remove them, wash them in simple green and scrub with an old toothbrush!
