Re: [jonathan.newman] cleaning dirt off your rig

While the OP wasn't asking about the full wash option, it came up.

The last post was good advice except I'll question one thing:

In reply to:
Pre-treat the dirtiest parts, the colored parts,pillow handles, and the white parts with liquid laundry detergent.

Maybe you mean some sort of stain remover, or diluted detergent, I don't know. But normal rig cleaning instructions all mention using a MILD solution of detergent. The liquid laundry detergent I have, has warnings about washing well if it gets on skin, and has dissolved paint where it has dripped off the container over time onto a shelf. Unless I have better data, I'm not putting that on a rig.

Also a couple additions: Setting a fan to blow on the wet rig is a great way to get it dried fast without it sitting soggy for days (depending on your local climate).

And everyone remember to take your reserve card out too before doing the wash.
