Cleaning Magnets

When making frit in steel containers the metal fragments need to be removed using magnets. It can be very difficult to get the fragments off the magnets.

A solution has been suggested. Put the magnet into a small plastic bag before use. After cleaning all the metal from the frit, take the bag to the bin and remove it from the bag. The metal fragments will drop off into the waste bin, leaving a clean magnet.


  1. This is the best advice ever. I hate trying to get that stuff off the magnets. I never would have thought of it myself. Thanks!

  2. As noted above, this (as many other suggestions are) was passed on to me by others. I'm glad it is of use.
