A small wire brush, most hardware stores have a small wire brush about 3/8 X 3/4 in SS or steel. But why would you want to, just put some more on and be done with it. I have never worried about cleaning bolts in this situation. In 99% of the situations it is a waste of time!

Scrubbing sucks! A die does the best job IMO. A tap to clean holes out.

I have stripped out JR bearing blocks by not removing threadlocker. Now I use a tap and die to remove threadlocker before I reassemble.

I would like to try the die method but can never find the dies.

I was thinking the same thing. Acetone can get expensive. Polish remover has acetone in it, might take a little longer of soaking but it's alot cheeper.
