Ways to clean wheelchair tires

  • Ways to clean wheelchair tires

    I was in a conversation with a historic site operator today and they have people take off their shoes to keep down tracking in dirt etc. Obviously you can’t easily change wheelchair tires at the door so they plan on wiping them down. But just a cloth doesn’t get in all the groves well. Does anyone have any suggestions for brushes or mats that could help?

      Power wheelchair tires are smaller.

      Great idea! Actually, we discussed this (along with @carmitch point about different tire sizes) to see if we could work together with a seniors’ sewing club or something to make a bunch of different sizes.

      And in the case there isn’t a fit, wipe and brush instead…

    Would a wire brush used for BBQ grills work? The bristles are very sturdy.
