How do you keep it all clean??
« on: April 10, 2011, 06:43:16 AM »
I hate cleaning/dusting SW items..  Is there an easier way?
I use Tbushes & warm water w/ Dawn  only thing that gets into cracks.

Look at it this way- dust is a protective layer put there by God - leave it alone!! Besides that , if a layer of dust is disturbed it can tell you if someone is putting their grubby little fingers on your stuff. The only problem is filling in the dust after you find the fingerprints!
Actually I have an air filter installed in the room and I use a feather duster on the packages and a small shop vac to suck up the dust as the feather duster loosens the dust. It isnt perfect but I guess every once in a while I will have to pick everything up and clean around it . Anyone want to help me with THAT job??

Most of my stuff is in boxes and some is on 2 shelves but the door stays closed so I don't get dust on the inter part of my collection on the shelf. On my stuff in the closet oh yeah its got some dust. My Masters collection well, that is another story cause it does have some dust as well but its open in the room since I hae no where to put it.

I used to get 2 of anything I opened, 1 for display & 1 put up, just so I had NO reason to clean them.

I do know Hasbro 12" figs can be put in top rack of Dwasher

Once I hired a woman who was from Mexico & she cleaned EVERYTHING for $20 & it took 3hrs+

Best $20 I ever spent, she refused to do it again for same price?

Most of my collection is inside the glass cabinets. There are my helmets and the 1:1 stormie outside but I dust them with a feather brush thing or with this: http://www.giottos.com/Rocket-air.htm

I can't keep up with my house - you expect me to dust the collection? HAHAHA

I try to dust, at least when I'm moving things around. If someone's coming over that I know wants to see the collections, I'll try to Swiffer at least the tops and around them. Its getting to the place now thought that there is no room to dust around them. Its getting pretty crowded
