Re: What's the best way for washing urethane?


Regular liquid dish detergent and warm water. Don't scrub with the scratchy side of the sponge... Just use a soft sponge. Shake off all the excess water. Don't rub it with a paper towel or something like that or tiny little hairs will stick behind. You can dab it lightly or just let it air dry.

And then depending on how shiny (or not) you want it, spray it with regular armor all or the "natural" (flat/no shine) Armor All and wipe it back off.

This will also take away any of the water "stains" that may or may not appear, from allowing it to air dry. It'll make them go away completely.

Armor all makes wipes for their regular shiny formula, but not the dull spray. And for some reason, using a paper towel to wipe off the Armor All, doesn't leave little hairs behind, that stick to the urethane.

Panther armor/cowls would most likely get the shiny kind, where the '89 stuff would get the flat/natural spray.

It works great and THOROUGHLY restores the urethane back to when it was first pulled out of the mold.

Wash it with water and try to get hold of something called Armorall protectant. it's a cleaner used in cars but protects and cleans rubber emoticon comes in gloss and semi-matte.

Yeah i knew about Armor-All, but to shine my begins suit even in the least is the complete last thing I wanna do.

I'll stick to water and soap, for now.

What's funny is, for the first time, I wore my begins suit outdoor on a sunny day for about 10 minutes, and instantly, one of my legs got covered in really small white dots...

Just hope those will wash away.

That would be from the water, after you washed it, I bet. Those are just water spots.

That'll go away once you use the flat Armor All on it.
