Cleaning the candy chute on site

Hi everybody

I placed a gumball machine in a local restaurant 1 1/2 weeks ago and it's been getting some action. While we were eating there recently my mom-in-law bought a gumball. I noticed the chute looked a little grimy. I want to drop by and clean it, but I'm not sure what to use. Just a damp paper towel?

What do you guys use when you service the machine?

Thanks for any help.

I use "clorox" wipes, I clean all of my machines from top to bottom with this each visit.  Iuse a fresh one for the chutes and then continue to the outside of the machines.

They come in a handy plastic container (like baby wipes) and "clorox" has a wonderful reoutation that people don't mind you doing your job while business is open...this also continues "MY complete servise" reputation.

The business owners appreciate that I keep a clean machine in thier place of business

I've found that the soapy wipes like these tend to streak and cloud up the plastic globe.  I generally just use a damp cloth when I do my servicing.  But I've been considering using computer wipes, or alcohol wipes if I can find them.

I use the Clorox wipes also. Then I use a clean rag to wipe it off. To eliminate the streaking, I use another clean rag and spray it with Pledge and wipe the whole machine down. This also gives the machine and globes a shine.

I use a Clorox spray product for the outside parts.  I never spray the inside of globes or the chute with anything for fear that the candy may taste like what I sprayed!:shock:  I use a spray bottle w/ water and a paper towel.  I also carry micro fiber cloths to clean up the outside parts.

Hmmm, I use vinegar and water to clean my machines.  If you have chrome stands and all boy they shine. 

Anyways, I use vinegar and water to clean the chute and dry it of course. Also ants don't like vinegar
