There are many great questions in the universe to which mankind has long sought the answer. Among them: What is the meaning of life? Who shot Mr. Burns? How does one clean Plasti Dip?
For the first two, the answers are fairly simple: 42 and Maggie Simpson, respectively.
For the third great question, however, there are several answers.
Before we go too much farther, I should specify that I’m referring to the cleaning of applied, cured Plasti Dip. To clean up Plasti Dip while you’re applying it, just wipe it up with a wet rag or paper towel.
Now, as with most everything, Plasti Dip gets dirty. Depending on what it is you Dipped, that marvelous DIY rubber coating may need regular cleaning. But, no matter how often you need to wash it, Plasti Dip—like any truly great consumer product—is easy to clean.
A little soapy water is usually enough to do the trick. Windex and other similar cleaners work great, too. Or, to get it really good and clean, try some Goo Gone—it’ll have your Plasti Dip shining like a new penny! Plasti Dip is pretty resilient stuff, so almost anything you’d usually use to clean similar materials should work fine.
Tough though it is, there are a few cleaning agents you should steer clear of when cleaning your Plasti Dip. Many thinners and solvents can and will damage Plasti Dip (though some thinners, like naphtha, can be used to mix up your own spray-on Plasti Dip solution). Gasoline will also damage dried Plasti Dip. Also, I really have no idea why anyone would want to use gasoline as a cleaner.
