I'm Bill Elzey with Showplace Lawns and I am going to talk to you about how to clean the spark plug, the spark plug either in the lawn mower, the weed eater or any of your gasoline lawn equipment. Now we have already taken the plug out of this machine and usually the best way to do that would be to use a socket and make sure that it corresponds to the size of the plug. After you have the spark plug out use a wire brush and just rotate it around the edges, get a good little clean on there and be careful not to bend anything and once I do that what I like to do is get you a small container, put you just a little bit of gasoline in it, tilt it, run your plug in there like that to kind of wash it off. Get a good clean rag, then maybe just kind of touch it up again with the wire brush. Wipe it off some more, give it a good blow and you should be ready to go.
