Used the 4x4 wipes yesterday, wish I had taken a before and after picture , one wipe did all 3 struts , towel was black afterwards. Looks great works great ! Recommend getting the 6x6 and be careful opening the packet up as they are heavily soaked .
I will be ordering more very handy to have in the hanger .

Thank you for the kind words Gary. Please let the forum know your thoughts. Best, Mark
So I finally have used them enough to get a decent review. Initially my plane was down for a few months getting a new panel and avionics work, then a week after it was done, I sent it for complete interior redo, After picking the plane up the struts were filthy dirty. I used my 6x6 wipe and it cleaned all 3 struts and the tube on the steering dampener. They seem very strong and do a good job of cleaning. Because the struts were so dirty, I couldn't get another use out of the initial one I used, so after flying several times afterwards, I usually wipe my struts down after every flight. I seem to be able to clean all 3 struts and dampener approximately 3 - 4 times with a 6x6 wipe until its dry or too dirty to continue. Overall a well made product. No more pouring 5606 on a rag or paper towel. I keep a few in the plane and the rest in the hangar. I have liked them so much, I gave several out to my neighbor hangars for them to try as well. Good job on creating a useful product. After my initial purchase of 50 gets depleted, I will definitely be ordering more. Thanks Again!

Thank you very much for your post Rightrudder. The Strutwipe should be saturated but not soaked. So I'm curious, were they dripping soaking wet? Was fluid left in the bag? This is important information so I can make improvements to the product. Thank you for your input.

Mark from Strutwipe sent me a 4X4 sample and it easily cleaned all three struts. Nice product and easy to use!
I will be ordering the 6X6 in a 50 pak.
Thanks Mark for offering a product that does what it says.
