Instructions for opening the box - 'PRESS/HERE' - are stamped on the front. The interior features two brushes: one attached to the inside lid, and the other to the base. A bicycle chain could be cleaned by shutting the box around a chain, passed through the open ends of the box and between the wire brushes.
