careful when using pinesol on plastics; it tends to soften them up a bit if you aren't careful, which will completely wipe out details etc. and ruin the fig.

And I'd suggest a denture brush. they're stiffer and work better than a toothbrush. Duane Reade, CVS, etc. all have them. Due to their stiffness they'll last longer than a toothbrush, even an old worn out one...

I use simple green on both metals and plastics. Plastics can soak in it for several days without damage: the primer won't come off, but the acrylics do. On metal, simple green will take the primer off too.

I also use a denture brush: much quicker than the toothbrush.
