The other day I was cleaning my bike with Pedro's "Bike Lust" - making it nice and purty - and, low and behold, I accidentally sprayed some of good ol' Pedro's lovely concoction on my front disc brake pads. Since this is a wax based fluid, it's acting like I spilled oil on the pads, i.e. I've lost a significant level of stopping power as they don't bite anymore but, rather, they simply slide the rotor to a stop.
I used alcohol to clean off the rotor however, I'm not sure if I want to douse the pad in alcohol.
Do any of you know of a way to clean disc brake pads or are my brand new disc brake pads (I just replaced both front and rear about two weeks ago) completely shot?
