today i answered two of the oldest questions .......

..... that have troubled fishermen since the dawn of time. or at least since the dawn of modern appliances.

first, can you clean your reels in the dishwasher? and second, if you get caught, what will your wife do?

well, i had a few hours at home before work this morning. i was looking at a box of reels that i got in the mail and figured that these really needed a good cleaning. with half a load of morning breakfast dishes and my wife out for a few hours, i seized the opportunity.



the dishwasher ran through the wash and rinse cycle, and started to dry. then, i heard the three words that a misbehaving husband fears the most. "honey, i'm home!!!" the first questions she asks is why the dishwasher is going. how do they know?



fortunately, she has a sense of humor. and lousy aim!



unfortunately, one dishwasher cycle did nothing to remove the corrosion on these old penns.



i was lucky this time. kids, don't try this at home.........

What is your method of removing the corrosion?
The method I use is not easy at all.

Hi Alan, you sure do get around. I have had clients who have come to class here actually tell me they cut off leg of panty hose and put their reels in and tie a knot and put in dishwasher. Ha ha. I bet their wife reacted just like yours. LOL
Good post. Thanks. BTw- I am still working on the Penn reel. One thing for sure, I know now why I like the freshwater baitcasters. ha hahah. thanks again for all you do to help all of us reel fixer uppers.
