Dremel Power Cleaner Variety Pack Review
I recently reviewed the Dremel VERSA Power Cleaner, this post is all about it’s accessory pads! After all, what good is a cleaning motor without something to do the cleaning? And more to the point, the ability to buy replacements for the consumables!
Eraser pad - melamine foam removes dirt and marks from hard surfaces (i.e. glass, leather) without damaging them
Non-scratch pad - non-scratch microfiber sponge removes dirt and marks from delicate surfaces (i.e. stove tops, stainless steel) without damaging them
Heavy-duty pad - microfiber sponge removes more stubborn stains and small surface scratches
Velcro - for easy accessory change
Versatile - works in dry and wet applications, works best with water and cleaning solutions
Quick and easy accessory change with the hook and loop system
Oversized accessories get into corners and tight spaces
Eraser Pad (white)
The white eraser bad is like a powered magic eraser (no surprises where the name inspiration came from). It’s made from melamine foam so it’s a very soft and non-abrasive cleaner.
It’s meant to be used on anything you’d use a magic eraser on. So think light scuffs on hard smooth materials like glass, tile, ceramics, etc. But, it’s also made to work well on fabrics and leather. So aside from you’re regular clothes, also think about work boots, work apron, leather features in furniture, holsters, sheathes, could probably even do some work on your car dashboard.
Non-Scratch Pad (blue)
The blue non-scratch pad is the one I used the most with the Dremel Versa inside the house, and the one my wife likes the most.
We have stainless steel appliances. They look great, but it also seems like just looking at them is all it takes to be covered in finger prints. With a spring of stainless steel cleaner, the blue non-scratch pad quickly has the all our stainless steel looking brand new. It also works on faucets!
The other place the blue pad will see a lot of duty is our stove top. I’m sure we’re the only people that do that, but sometimes stuff splashes out of a pan and inadvertently gets cooked onto the cook top. This pad isn’t made for those messes (tip: that’s why I keep a razor scraper in the kitchen, cleans it in no time!). But it’s great at cleaning all the other messes that our stove top regularly sees.
Heavy-Duty Pad (brown)
The brown heavy duty pad is where I really see the value with this tool. Be warned, this is tough enough to scratch stuff. So don’t use it on any surfaces you wouldn’t want scratches to show up on. But, that’s also what makes it a great cleaner on surfaces that can take a scratching.
Like cast iron. Which is everywhere in my shop. But let’s be real. When I “clean” my shop, it’s more about putting things away than breaking out disinfectant or the like. But I’m still a messy guy, especially when it comes to finishes.
So if you have a hand plane or table saw top that’s fallen victim to over spray from paint or poly, this is the pad that’ll cover where your drop cloths didn’t.
