Getting the "smell" out of a TF?

My Alt. Mode Sucks

Recommended Posts

OK, I recently acquired a TF from a trade that came from a smoker's house, and the smoke smell is pretty much stuck on the toy. How can I get it off without, yanno, hurting the Transformer?


BTW, the toy was Alt Wheeljack

(I really hope I got the spelling right! - NOT "Brotherly" Love!?!)

I take all my old boot-sale "junkers" to bits & soak them in hot (NOT boiling) soapy water for an hour or so, wash them with an old (medium-head) electric toothbrush, rinse them thoroughly, dry them off with an old (clean) towel, then dry in the gaps with a (not too hot) hair-dryer. Then buy some Reprolabels! I've never had a problem with any of the paint coming off, but it's entirely up to you.


(Make sure you have a hair-dryer handy as you don't want the screws, etc going rusty!)
