Cleaning: Dirty bird feeders spread disease. We recommend cleaning your feeders weekly, or monthly at a minimum. Clean your feeders outdoors with a large bucket, and always wear gloves when cleaning. Soak your feeder in a 9:1 solution of water and bleach for 15 minutes. Then use a bird feeder brush to scrub the feeder with dish soap and water. Refill when completely dry.
Fine brush, great feeder, FAST service!
The Droll Yankee 24" feeder brush is fine & does what it's supposed to - makes it easy to clean the inside of tube feeders. I just wish the bristles were just a little stiffer. At the same time, I also ordered the Droll Yankee Ring Pull 1 lb. feeder. Absolutely great feeder like all the Droll Yankees. We had a rash of House Finches sick with conjunctivitis this summer & needed a feeder that was easy to clean thoroughly. The ring pull feature makes taking apart the feeder a breeze and cleaning quick & easy. MUCH easier than our 2.5 lb. 20" Droll Yankee feeder. Great feeders that with care will probably outlast me! And the service was fast! Had my order in 2 days! Thank you!

Not what was expected
After I ordered this, I noticed that the cost of shipping was nearly as much as the brush itself! Once I received it, I was disappointed by the size of the brush head. It had about a 2-3" diameter. The bird feeder has a 5" diameter. I would have returned it, but that would have cost even more. Disappointed.
Hi Dennis, Thank you for your review of the Droll Yankees Bird Feeder Brush. We are sorry this product was not what you expected. The brush is a great tool to use on any tube feeder. The diameter of the brush is sized to fit and move around the inside of a tube so you can get all sides cleaned easily. We hope that it proves helpful in the cleaning process. Yes, for us to pay for returns, there needs to be a fault on our part, like a damaged/defective item sent or a wrong item sent. Since that is not the case with this situation, you would need to pay to ship the item back and then we could refund you for the item once received. If you have any other questions, comments or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to our Customer Service Team at 1-800-352-9164. Thank you.
