I tried the power washer (lazy) & the centre board (I think that's what it's called) came up fine
But the rudder has a layer of kinda faded grey over the white
Jif/vim & kitchen spray have had no effect
Is it plastic? It's impossible to keep eg plastic garden furniture looking like new - as long as it's actually clean, does it matter if it looks faded?
I guess that
but she wants it clean
Ah - well, let her try to make it clean then
The best thing to clean plastic with is washing powder.
Bio or non?
BTW flash doesn't work either
She is cleaning - I am supervising
I wish it was small enough to go in the dishwasher
Sorry - I was otherwise engaged/forced into the playhouse and made to lie down in bed whilst reading stories to my captor
I would always choose bio for anything that's not babys clothes, but I actually haven't excperimented to see if it makes a big difference on plastic cleaning tbh.
My dad has suggested Milton (the bio didn't work)
Oh well - perhaps just works best on surface dirt.
Good luck with the Milton. You might have to resort to telling your daughter to live with it!
She is coming round to that way of thinking atm
She might call it the dirty banana to save having to clean it anymore
Vim & a scouring pad seem to be the most effective
They just take such a bloody long time
They will damage the surface too, katymac - it will get dirtier, and be harder to clean next time you try.
Try to convince DD that being clean is more important than looking clean
That's a bummer
& now I find I have to use a heat gun on the whole thing to even out the colour and remove all the white (which is sun dmamge or bruising )
Now I've seen the naming DD's boat thread, I'm wondering if it is plastic - is it, or wood?????
Plastic (polypropoline) Very worried about it ever coming clean
Well the heat gun thing sounds promising (although scary)
