Care and Cleaning of Armor

Post by Arsnik »

I seem to be collecting black marks on my TK armor which are caused by the armor coming in contact with my painted blaster or other things around the house. The armor is RS Prop Masters PVC and I'd like to find a safe product to clean and then shine it up.

Also it seem to be collecting a light coating of dust, which appears to be coming from the black undersuit, and it's all over the interior and exterior of the armor. Is there an anti-static product that would be safe to use?

Thanks for the help,

Dean

Mr Clean Magic eraser will remove the black marks from the armor. It will make it shine as well. Use as directed. Cant say about the dust, never had that kind of problem.

Are the erasers the best product for shining the armor as well as removing marks? I'd like to put a shine on the entire set so I want to check before I do it.

The magic eraser will restore the shine if it had a shine to begin with. If not you can use Novus plastic polish. Do a google search for plastic polishes or Novus itself.

Here is a linkhttps://www.novuspolish.com/store.html
