    What should I use to clean the dirt off of a pinball cab? Don’t want to ruin the art.

    Mean green all day.

    That's a before and after. Took a while but now it looks new.

    That's quite the mic drop. Note to self: get some more mean green.

    Mean Green for me also for Years. From pinballs to cleaning the grill and patio nothing strips dirt better. Including your skin. lol

    And it even grows proper legs.

    I prefer CP100 and Magic Eraser, lightly of course. Isopropyl 70% plus ME works good also.

    Even using this lightly requires much less effort than scrubbing vigorously with other agents. Good rule of thumb…if you start seeing paint on the Magic Eraser, you’re scrubbing too hard or spending too much time in one area.

    Then a light wipe down with CP100 and a soft rag after.

    Here’s how the progression turned out on my Superman. Didn’t lift any paint. Whole cab was crap-stained ciggy damage yellow.

    Looks great! Might try magic eraser on the next one. Mean green worked great for me but it took a long time. It did help my machine grow legs though.
