A paintball squeegee is a device used for clearing a broken ball out of the marker due to the bolt cutting it and throwing paint down the barrel. Basicily it is what it sounds like it is a rubber o ring at the end of a stick which is stuck down the barrel then pulled out to clear the barrel. A variation of this is the paintball swab, which is my personal favorite, it is like a long q tip. that actually soaks up the paint in the barrel.

If the body is big enough to clean with a squeegee or bottle brush, clean the body in the same way as the barrel. Use a toothbrush or Q-tips to clean tight places. ▪ Step 6: Clean out the grip-frame.
