The bit must be cleaned periodically to remain sharp, by following the manufacturer's instructions. Drill bits usually last 2-3 months but this can vary dependent on how busy you are.  



    • Use warm soapy water to remove the dust and product debris from within the grits flutes and teeth. 
    • We then suggest you use our "Willow Spay & Go!". Lay the bits on a towel, spray them evenly, roll them over, spray again, wait 2 minutes and GO!

    • If soaking in Barbicide please only steep for the recommended time, over- steeping can dull your drill bits. 
    • Once sterilised, dry the pieces and store in your Willow Container 
    • Alternatively, after cleaning your pieces with warm soapy water you can use a UV sterilising cabinet. 


    How do I know I need a new drill bit? 

    If the bit you are using originally took 1-2 swipes along the nail to penetrate the product and now is taking 2,3+ swipes to penetrate the product, it's now time for a new bit. You may also be taking longer or you may be starting to feel more body wear and tear,  because you are having to work harder to penetrate the product.
