These work great Amazon.com: ABRASIVE CLEANER: Home Improvement
You should be able to find some locally, some people use erasers, rubber sole shoes, soles of running shoes, and I'm sure others will be along to tell you what else works. Cleaning
all sandpaper really extends it's life. Good luck

Wildcat, Get yourself a rubber sanding belt cleaner or if you're cheap like and have an old pair of sneakers use the sole. They work pretty good too.

I you drink wine, or something else that comes with the rubbery corks, they work well.

If the buildup is from sanding soft wood, the corner of a piece of hardwood scrap works well.

That suggestion about hte old sneakers really works. Thanks..... Once I figured out how to get my foot up on the bench it worked great... Yes it hurt the first couple times I fell off the bench but then I got the hang of it it cleaned up the sand paper real nice....


No I am not that stupid.... Just getting old.....


Merry Christmas to everyone....

On my belt sander I take my shop vac and hold the hose close to, but not touching, the belt and it sucks the dust off like new.

I have used soft steel wool on mine for years and it is about the quickest and best way I have found. Hope this helps.
