Some of my army men are dirty.

So I am experimenting with ways to clean them.

I used a variety of cleaners, Oxy Clean, Simple Green, bleach, bluing, Soft Scrub, and vinegar.

These figures are at least 40 years old, probably closer to 50 years.

I was looking for the easiest way to clean hundreds of figures.

The white figures were very discolored, not just dirty.  I like to use them for scientists, doctors and lab technicians so they need to be really white.

any brittleness?

I sorted out the brittle figures prior to cleaning and they were removed from my collection. The cleaning had no effect on the figures other than to clean them.
