I think we get this question more than any other.

Use this stuff right here.


Just dump it in a bowl and drop the figures in it. Leave them in it for a few hours. Then scrub with a nasty toothbrush.

He was probably trying to link some "Simple Green" works on everything. Just put it in over night and clean the next day.

If that isn't enough info, you can go to the "Cool Mini or Not" Forum and they have a half a page of links to different posts on stripping paint. Simple Green has worked the best so far for me.

Mike is right also about being a topic that comes up a lot. I started a thread about 2 weeks ago asking about Simple Green that turned into a stripping paint topic. You can check it out if you want other opinions from around the community here.

PostSubject: Pine Sol works too   Thu May 27, 2010 1:44 am

I've had good luck stripping paint off of plastic with Pine Sol and a tooth brush. My only problem was that the tooth brush also removed the tiny antennae on the side of the Tau Fire Warriors' helmets.Crying or Very sad Oh well, I'll just say they switched to 2.4 GHz! lol!
