Cleaning resin can be time-consuming and annoying having to scrub all those small details with a toothbrush. When working with small amounts of resin on a very rare occasion, that can work.

There are various sizes of sonic cleaners on the market, but this one works well for working with a lot of resin or large resin components for sure!
On this particular cleaner, you can set a timer to clean as long as you wish to. The tank is large and has several different cycles and temperatures. The tub even has a removable basket, minimum and maximum fill lines, durable lid, and plenty of space for resin pieces!
To start the process, just add a little soap plus water to the fill lines to the tub. You can use hot water or use the heat function built into the tub. Set the time desired and fill with resin pieces you wish to clean. Then, set it and leave for the time set while the machine buzzes away!
Once the timer hits zero, pull out your models and rinse with water, then set them somewhere to dry. Putting them by a fan will help them dry faster. This will also work if you need to bend and straighten resin as well.
If you’re working with a lot of resin, this is a great way to clean lots of components fairly quickly. For bending resin, the heat gun may be faster, but this could help if you need to bend and readjust a lot of it at once.
There are also smaller options on the market if you are looking for something like this but don’t want such a large tank/price!
