I have Bones Reds Bearings, I need to clean them, is there a way to clean the balls on these bearing? If there is how do you do it, my friend said some bearings you can pop out the thing that protects them.

your friend is full of shit... just take off the wheels and take a kleenex or sumthin and clean the "gunk" out

No one is full of ***** otherwise they'd be dead.

Now, with that settled, to clean your bearings you
a. Pop off the shields
b. Put the bearings in a solvent such as
1. Paint thinner/mineral spirits
2. Denatured alcohol
3. Gasoline
4. Kerosene
5. Carburetor cleaner
c. Take them out a little bit later after the dirt has been mostly removed.
d. If you have one, take a can of compressed air and spray the bearings. If not, leave them dry on a napkin for a few minutes.
e. Relubricate them using the lubricant of your choice (I use synthetic oil/skate lubricant).
f. Put the shields back on.

is there a proper way to take off the sheild, or do I just use a screw driver.
