Cleaning press

I have around 50# of apples to press for cider. I have an old press that hasn’t been used for over 25 yrs.

It’s constructed of oak and steel, and is structurally sound.

My question is do I need anything special to clean it, or will water and a scrubbing pad work?

I plan on adding campden to the cider.


I always scrub mine each year with water to remove the gunk and spray it down with starsan before use, especially the parts that will touch the cider. You should be fine with a good washing and adding campden.
