So a while back I rescued a Class of 1812 from a very dirty home. Not only was it never regularly cleaned but the people living in the house were terrible chain smokers. With that being said there are many places on the play field where the grime is so thick I can't get it off. I've used goop and let it sit but nothing. Anyone have some suggestions? Thanks.

Magic Eraser sponge with Isopropyl Alcohol, test an area 1st. Go slow and ck often so you don't go thru the color

We all are. Don't get discouraged. If the Magic Eraser doesn't work probably nothing will. The dirt may be ground into the paint too far to come out. Read closely in Vid's thread I linked. You'll be really disappointed if you Magic Erase down to the wood. Repainting is a whole new level of commitment.
