    How do you get it to come off? I accidently got it on both brakes of my mower so now the brakes slip and its a royal pita to turn and makes me A LOT less efficient. I can't get it to come off. What can i do or use to get it off of the brakes of my mower? Thanks,

    www.eurekafluidfilm.com penetrating lube, very powerful, non drying, works great when used in the right places!

    Probably brake cleaner would work.

    I'm a big fan of the fluid film too.

    Your brakes will never be the same. They will suck up the lube like a sponge. Brake cleaner will get the surface but as they wear down a bit you will be back to a penetrated slippery area.

    Spray the crap out of them and deal with it, or buy new ones.

    New brakes while you are still in down time.I got oil on a wb blade brake last year and had to replace it.It tore up 2 belts stopping them TOO FAST.
