Parts washers were at one time or another exclusively used by industrial manufacturing or maintenance-type operations to clean parts and components. These industrial units often use dangerous and highly flammable solvents, which include tetrachloroethylene, trichloroethylene, xylene, toluene, methyl ethyl ketone, and benzene that effectively clean parts but are less than ideal for residential usage. These commonly used solvents have flash points below 140 degrees F, making them highly ignitable. Water-based parts washers, such as the Oil Eater tabletop parts washer, are better alternatives to dangerous combustible solvent cleaners.

Cleaning parts is easier, faster, and safer with the 5-gallon tabletop parts cleaner from Oil Eater. Measuring only 13x14x5.5 inches, the unit is small in stature but don't let looks alone fool you. The Oil Eater parts washer cleans parts and tools quickly and efficiently just like the big boys, even under heavy daily use, but compact enough to store on a shelf in your garage. This convenient-sized part cleaner is ideal for mobile repair of vehicles, race trailers, and toy haulers as well. The tabletop washer can effectively clean a variety of items that range in shapes and sizes from nuts and bolts to larger-sized automotive parts like intake manifolds. Take into consideration that parts washers, using water and detergents, are much cheaper to operate and usually have a longer life cycle than other alternatives. Advantages to using water-soluble washer systems include a wash solution that remains cleaner and does not redeposit on the parts, operates with biodegradable detergents that eliminates the need for damaging solvents and aerosol cleaners that come with costly disposal costs, and water-based solution that saves you money in the long run.

In search of a parts basket to use to wash and dry, we found the perfect piece at our favorite local Japanese discount store, Daiso, for under a buck. Using a pair of pliers, we performed some minor modifications to the basket to allow the cover to close.

The environmentally friendly, water-soluble solution flows through a cleaning brush, making cleanups a snap and a sealable lid keeps the tank clean and neat when not in use.
