    Metal/Acrylic Cleaners

    Hi,Group,
    On an aircraft "housekeeping" subject,for the last 2 years,I've been trying
    different cleaners,waxes,airshow booth products,automotive products, and the
    one I've found really works best amd easiest on "everything
    "-paint,metal,acrylic- is the common old household Pledge. I have been using
    Lemon Pledge,the last while.
    Maybe this is common knowledge to you all,or many,but if not, try it.
    Regards,
    Ray Griffin

    Good tip, Ray. The motorcycle community keeps coming back to it and
    Rellihan has mentioned it often. I'd just add that the motorcycle
    community has noticed that the guys using the unscented version have
    noticeably less problems with bees!

    Tis is probably a good time to mention the new "aircraft" Simple Green. I
    received a free sample quart of the stuff along with literature attesting to
    it being safe and corrosion free. Having heard all of the old Simple Green
    stories, I hadn't intended to use it on the plane, but, after reading the
    literature, decided to try it. The stuff was amazing. I used it to remove
    about 30 pounds of dead bugs from my cowl, wing and tail leading edges, and
    landing farings. I sparyed a little on a car wash sponge soaked with water
    and just wiped off the bugs. The whole job took less than 10 minutes.

    Hi all
    I want to second Carl experience. I just bought a
    plane and the paint is coming off so i have been very
    cafrefull on the products i use to clean. I also had a
    fair number of bugs and the cowl looked terible using
    the new simple green worked wonders and the paint
    stayed on the plane not the cloth.

    Metal/Acrylic Cleaners

    Hi,all.
    Hey,I am going to try that Simple Green you mentioned. And the "straight"
    Pledge.
    But along with Pledge for cleaning/waxing metal,paint and acrylic,I use
    another household cleaner product, "Fantastik",to get oil off the belly and
    bugs off the leading edges.I've been using Fantastik "Orange" to clean,then
    applying the Pledge to shine.
    I started using Fantastik to clean after noticing that the P-38 White
    Lightning ground crews at Reno air races used nothing but " Fantastik" spray
    to clean oil off the fuselage booms after every flight.
    So, Pledge and Fantastic work for me.
    Ray Griffin
