CMX Track Cleaner Cleaning Pad Replacements

Recommended Posts

Can anyone recommend any fabric for the CMX track cleaners?


A video online recommended some herringbone type fabric but the tweed sort I've found... well I'm a bit worried about it leaving strands around the layout.


I'm sure I've read of others using cord type material.


Any recommendations warmly welcomed.

The material roll that came with my CMX when new was corduroy. I don't use the cleaner much (layout most of the time covered in junk!) but it seems to be reasonably durable and not shed bits that I've noticed.

My wife found all sorts of bits of similar fabric to corduroy in her sewing box and even cut them to size for me...


They work absolutely fine and I can throw them away after they become too dirty.

I think CMX recommend corduroy upholstery fabric as it has a backing on it. I bought a strip 100mm wide from a local shop earlier this week. Cost about 4 dollars. Just cut it into narrower strips as required.
