I found an article on cleaning blades a few weeks ago. I think it was one of the magazines – FWW or PWW – don’t remember which, but they did a test on cleaning solutions “designed” for cleaning blades and then some household products they felt would do the job. The designated blade cleaning solutions did their job as expected, but Simple Green and laundry detergent did the job equally well.

I have a bunch of blades that need to go to a sharpening service. There’s one not too far from my house which charges $15/blade which will make it worthwhile for me to do. Now I just have to do it.

OP give your blades a good cleaning and then maybe look in your area for a sharpening service. Also, I used to use Freud blades almost exclusively, mixed in with some CMT, but after picking up a Forrest WW II blade, I think that’s where my money is going. They’re located in New Jersey and not too far for me to drive to drop off blades for reconditioning. They’ll replace chipped/missing teeth and sharpen, all for a reasonable price, considering replacement is much more expensive.
