I made the dumb mistake of thinking I could use a copper pipe cleaning tool
to clean up some galvanized that I was working on. Little did I realize how
futile that was until it was too late.
Anyway, time has passed and now I've got it in my head to teach myself how
to solder copper pipes - now that copper has dropped in price. so I'm
looking at my pipe cleaner and wondering if it's even worth it to try to
clean it up and use it to prep copper pipes.
Is the thing basically ruined now that I've got the bristles all rusty and
bent? I can clean it up of course, but would it still be basically useless
for cleaning copper pipes? It's not like it cost an arm and leg in the
first place, but I'd rather not buy again if I don't have to.
