cleaning jaws play set?

Posted in Action Figure Chatter

I just bought the jaws play set ,that mcfarlane makes, from a fleamarket but it seems to have like fur/hairs stuck all over it. How do I go about cleaning this stuff off? I tried a mild soap and water and its not really cleaning it to well, but I don't want to use anything that might ruin the paint on the set.

Ill have to stop by the store and pic up the mrclean sponge, because alcohol didn't di anything, neither did hot water and dawn. I'm getting some goof off today.

I wonder if this was a problem with the paint on the thing you were washing instead of a problem with the sponge.

It was Dollar-Store brand, but I'm assuming they do the same thing

be careful w/ the magic erasers... they lightly sand off the... disgusting stuff... I tried using it on a real ghostbusters ecto-1 to see if I could get it more white, and it took the gloss away from the small test area I used it on... so if you do go w/ Pock's plan, use it on a small, un-noticeable part of the playset first.

I sugest using a Mr. Clean sponge. It has some kind of sope in it that works great fore this kind of thing.

Isopropyl alcohol (90% or greater) works great with sticky junk, Should be fine~but test it on a safe area if your unsure.
I use this all the time on all types of things to remove sticky type residues and have never caused any damage to the item, It's safe enough to use on cpu cores and Tape/Film like VHS AND Cassette.
I always use 99%, Should be able to find it at your local market.

I was gonna suggest that. It shouldn't hurt the paint, I've had good results from it....but like Green Skin said test it first.

Some Goo Gone will work. It shouldn't affect the paint, just to be sure do a test area on the bottom of a foot.

Have you tried some Dawn? That usually gets anything off.
