Cleaning


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.
