How to clean gunked-up sanding disks

I just discovered a great trick to clean those sanding disks that useless due to being clogged with paint, Bondo and/or wood pitch but are otherwise in good shape. Hit the spinning disk with the edge of a piece of fiberglass and ALL of the gunk comes out. Disk looks brand new! Now I keep all the flashings from fiberglass parts I make in a box as sanding disk cleaners and make up small pieces of fiberglass for the purpose if I am out of scraps.

These work great for wood and I wouls think for this also. You can get them at Lowes and such for pretty cheap.

Yes those erasers work pretty well also, as well as gum soles on certain shoes (the light tan rubbery stuff). I have bought them before but I lose them every time! Have used a couple pair of gum sole shoes too. The fiberglass is great since I always have some chunks of flashing lying around and can afford to lose them and still find another. Plus they are free! Just a tip on another possible option.
