Cleaning Scotch Brite Belts

Not sure if this was covered recently here- but I was wondering about the ability to clean a Scotch Brite or Surface conditioning belt. I used a fine belt to polish some aluminum for the Bevel jigs i have- and it left fine grit and particles in the belt. I use the belt for finishing blades and just dont want to have this affect the finish.

Is this something anyone has done or tried and does it work or will I be buying a new belt?

The best option is to just buy new ones. Attempting to clean those type of belts is a LONG and TEDIOUS endeavor.... and you ALWAYS miss some.....but the exciting part is when you find what you missed.......when you mess up a blade! :oops:

Just buy new one. ;)
