How does everyone clean I'm moving to Manhattan and I'm starting to pack up all my collection and I've noticed they are all pretty dusty.
What's the best and cheapest way to clean all this dust off? Are these pledge wipes okay? Will they harm anything?
My tried and true method
First dust the figure with a paintbrush, in pic related I'd reccomend the "mop" or "flat". Be sure to get into crevasses and under armor and joints and such
Canned air duster followup
and then gently wet a wring out a paper towel with warm water, give a gentle wipedown. Let the figure sit out for awhile to dry.
Voila, good as new
>buying expensive tiny brushes to clean your toys
Just buy a cheap thin but wide paint brush from your local home depot for a buck.
Best toy duster you'll ever own and does a good job at dusting your shelves too.
I use something a little wider than this to dust my tini-tiny 1:144 scale tanks, infantry, and gunpla. So delicate it won't even harm antennas and machine guns, yet will push out all the dust from inbetween every microscopic crevice.
all artist brushes I see cost over a dollar.
nevermind the fact that they're too fucking tiny and will take you four times longer to dust anything.
these are made from camel and some other shitty animal hair and cost less than a buck and will dust everything fast without damaging anything.
>people keep recommending "artist brushes" instead of makeup brushes because they're too afraid to appear feminine
Holy shit guys. Make up brushes are designed for FACIAL use and are the gentlest possible thing you can use. Who gives a shit if someone sees you in the make up section of the store buying one?
Artists brushes vary in quality and in terms of being gentle on paint. I've seen some morons scratch their toys because they go the wrong brush but with make up brushes you always end up with something soft.
