    I was just wondering what some of you do to clean up your Tf's when they have old stickers and dust or dirt on them.

    I have had some pretty good luck with Goo Gone (for getting the old stickers off) and baby wipes for getting the dust and dirt off. But I was wondering what some of the rest of you do to clean some of these older TF's up?

    Sorry if this has been asked before...

    as far as dust is concerned, i use the canned airspray for computers. you can also use soft-bristled toothbrush for cleaning tfs.

    What if one does not have access to those?

    Just realized that compressed air cans are illegal in this country... >_<

    I use the compressed air as well and a microfiber towel. Works great. I would suggest maybe that if you cant get the air.

    really? that just sucks. anyways, like what megaprime said, you can also use microfiber cloth, the one thats used for lenses. soft-bristled toothbrush is an option too.

    Goo gone can sometimes take the shine off the plastic. I have removed stickers from clear plastic with and it clouded up. I;ve said this in the past Castrol Super Clean is an excellent cleaner. Doesn't hurt plastic but will remove paint. Use rubbing alcohol if there is any paint on the part you want to remove.

    I use the microfiber towels that I use to detail my car for dusting my figures as well...

    Oooh, microfiber towels... I have one that I use for my camera, but do I clean the towel itself like a regular towel? (I rarely use it)
