About The Event

Time to give your skates a spruce up!  While we find cleaning skates intensely satisfying, it can also be nice to get yourself a cup of tea and sit with others to clean your wheels.  BUT if you have never done this before, or aren't sure of the skaters near you, then join our online session.

Mel will go through how to take apart your skates using various tools clean each part and then put them back together.  If you have any questions about your kit, then it's time to have them answered - it doesn't matter what the question is - if it's niggling you, please just ask.  Remember that you can't know what you don't know!

You'll need all your own tools, as this is an online session.  We recommend a skate tool, adjustable wrench, a screwdriver (optional, depends on your toe stop), Allen key and bearing tool.  A skate tool is enough to get started with.  Our shop has all the tools and suede/vinyl cleaners you may need. Just make sure you allow enough time for us to post them to you.

We will be taking your skates apart, but not cleaning the bearings.  Mel will demonstrate how to remove the bearing shield and what to do for your future reference though.

You'll also need:

Paper towel, old newspaper or microfibre cloth

Baby wipes or access to a sink

If wanting to take your bearings apart - a needle or craft knife, bearing cleaner / acetone, leakproof container, bearing oil/lube
