Yes there is no need to use acetone or any other stuff like this.


95% of all paint will disappear easily after putting the flats overnight in water with a handful of laundry detergent. When starting it may ease the process to fill in hot (but not cooking hot) water and a handful of laundry detergent mix it and then put in the flats.

Hello everyone, yes we are still alive.  We use dishwasher taps for cleaning.  Leave to work overnight in a glass of water and then work with a toothbrush.  At least it's not a heavy head. ;)
best regards
Wolfgang

Dettol is a concentrated antiseptic fluid, used in dilution for various first aid, medical and personal hygiene purposes According to the label, it is Chloroxylenol 4.8% w/v. I'm sure its equivalent is in most homes on your side of the Atlantic.

Give it Chromofag - it works instantliy.
A very small amount is enough.

However I think it is banned in EU.

For years I have used Easy Off odorless oven cleaner. Spray the piece, let it sit for a hour, brush lightly with an old toothbrush. Works on old or new paint, even baked-on paint. No odor. Little mess.

Never heard of Dettol. What is it?

Thanks Ed, will give it a go.  On old enamel painted figures I have been using Mr Muscle oven cleaner sprayed into a clip lock bag and sealed for 30 minutes.  This still requires a light going over with a toothbrush and I have to wear a mask.

That’s good to know Ed, a lot safer than using fire and paint stripper👍😃

MMMmmmmm!  It must be your attitude, or your face !


Also you are probably wearing a mask on your face, when shopping, don't use a drawing suggesting you're a killer!

I have used it - works well, but it certainly makes a pong.

When I buy acetone, they suspect I am making explosives.

stripping paint

My son alerted me to a useful substance for stripping paint from metal figures. It is relatively cheap, safe to use, and present in many homes. Believe it or not, it is Dettol! I have experimented on both freshly (and badly) painted figures, and figures primed and underpainted several years ago. After a couple of hours immersed in a drop or two of Dettol, the paint comes off with the slightest touch of a brush. The only downside is that my painting room smells like a hospital!
