I need actual advice/realistic solutions and not people suggesting baby wipes.I'm amassing a larger Street Sharks collection and quite a few are dirty. But they're made out of this weird rubber shit and I know that if I use alcohol or regular soap it could dry it out and damage it or crack it.What do I use to whiten up spots and clean up the overall pieces so they aren't permanently fucked and dried out? Also, street sharks thread I guess.
>>10054423Have you tried baby wipes?
>>10054423Did you use hot water or cold water? Ive heard warm/hot helps alot more. The grime could also just be the old paint peeling.
>>10054463Boogie wipes? Would dude wipes work?
>>10054423Shove it up your ass.
>>10054423Goo gone works wonders and help keep rubber not dry out.
>come to /toy/ for help>no one helps>>10054487I am going to scream.
>>10054492Isn't there like a straight citric acid version of this? May be less harmful? Idk man I'd try a dillution of simple green
>>10054463https://www.wikihow.com/Clean-Rubberthe few people I've seen repair/refurbish street sharks all follow link related. warm water, soap, and rubbing alcohol is all I can point you to. there are some rubber cleaning solutions avalible but I've never used any of them so I can speak to their handiness. other than, I know break fluid sometimes helps in removing grime. The thing is its known to strip paint too.
>>10054557Okay, warm water and soap sounds reasonable.
>>10054423hydrogen peroxide ia good for deyellowing plastics, I dont know if it has the same effect on paint however
>>10054563It's going strip the paint you stupid fuck.
>>10054423Someone actually made a guide on how to clean these kinds of street sharks figures. https://youtu.be/kTcx739JVHs
>>10054423I know that that fig in particular used to fill water and shoot it out it's blow hole. Honestly I think it would be fine. How big is the collection and why'd you inherit it?
>>10054423For these things I don't think you can really make them as clean as they were besides really gentle baby soap and warm water. Some people in the Street Sharks group led by the actual creator actually just repaint the figures to restore their colors.
Fuck yeah street sharks is where it's at
>>10054423If you have dirt that cannot be cleaned with baby wipes on that rubbery material then repainting is pretty much the only efficient solution. Like >>10055724 said even their creator does that instead of the usual methods people use with plastic.
