Tom Jones uses a brush to clean the space suit of fellow spacewalker Robert Curbeam. The astronaut's suit was exposed to ammonia when a cooling line he was connecting sprung a leak. The brush down was carried out as a precautionary measure before the astronauts returned to the airlock. Source video: NASA TV (239k, 11 sec QuickTime file).
