Saw a posting on a blog where the author used Simple Green to clean plastic figures. Has anyone tried this product?

Simple Green will remove most paints, so don't clean your hobby stuff with it. Use regular soap and water.

I use Oxyclean to clean my unpainted plastic troops that I buy used. You don't know where they have been. It's great.

For regular cleaning use warm water and soap if they are not too dirty.

For cleaning painted plastic figures I clean them dry, using a very large soft brush, like a make up brush.

Yes, Simple Green is great for stripping acrylic paint from figures, so I only use it on new figures from the molds and rinse very well to remove the cleaner.
