I've been using an old wine glass cleaner that my wife bought at the store, however, I didn't know what it was or where to get a new one. After searching on the internet I found out that it is a wine glass cleaner. My old one finally broke, so I bought a new one from the internet. They cost about 5$ apiece. I've been using it to clean soot out of a 4" diameter body tube that utilizes a piston for chute ejection. I can attach it to a long wood dowel using duct tape to reach faraway places. I've even placed baby wipes on it to pick up soot, but I need to be prepared to find another even longer rod to push the out the lost baby wipes. With some force I've been able to clean up a 38 mm motor mount tube, but again be prepared to push out the wine glass cleaner with a long rod. I think this could be used clean out 38 mm and 54 motor cases.

Great idea!

I was looking at industrial brush suppliers also, for something with bristles. There is quite a selection available to make cleaning easier.

I've found a number of brushes in different sizes among the beer and wine making supplies. Lots of different sized bottle brushes.

I use the cleaning brushes sold by Chris' Rocketry Supplies https://www.csrocketry.com/search.ht...sh&_a=category You can cut the handles off the end and stick it in drill, which works really well. So does using a baby wipe with the brush.
Thanks for the suggestion, Michael. I've ordered a 29 mm, 38 mm, and 54 mm brush for Chris' Rocketry Supplies.
