60mm Cleaning

I am cleaning my 60mm armies.  The newest ones are recasts, but the vast majority of them are 40 to 60 years old.  I have had some of them since 1958 and got many off eBay.  Many are very dirty.  I am using these clear plastic boxes on my patio to clean them.

After a lot of experimentation I found OxiClean seems to work best cleaning soft plastic figures.

Here are some of the troops in ZipLoc bags waiting for cleaning.

Troops go into the water along with a scoop of the OxiClean.

The troops were soaked for 12 to 24 hours, sometimes with an extra scoop of OxiClean.

I stirred the figures every few hours to make sure they were all covered with water and cleaner.
