    I use a garden hose and rinse everything out really nice. I've thought about busting out the pressure washer too.

    i usually douse it in gasoline and set it on fire. kills 99.9% of odor-causing bacteria.

    I'm lazy....when I buy a game, I prop playfield up in back of truck before leaving....if there is anything left in it when I get home, I hit the automatic car wash. I pay extra for a wax coat of course.

    I wheel my machines into the car wash.

    Recommend over Trewax? Has to be easier than fighting with the pops.

    Now, just to be sure, how much gas do you use and is it ethanol based?

    Big secret! They are actually the same thing!

    The scent is slightly different however, so you may consider some pinetree air fresheners for your shooter rod.

    Hint, for an extra fresh scent, cut out the center of several pinetree fresheners and install them as pop bumper skirts. Really freshens up your game!

    For the true EM collector, that mellow mildew scent is pure Chanel number 9.

    I like to clean the backside of my backglasses with a moistened Brillo pad. Does a great job of cleaning away any yellowing or black dust left by the bulbs. They come out so clean, you can see right through them!

    You say April fools, I say it works great to get the dust off after sanding to prep for a hardtop installation.

    I have also done this. I have a LGBT blower. After sanding an entire cabinet, I first sucked all of the dust out then blew out the rest.

    Lawn and Garden Blowing Tool?

    Or is that Leaf and Grass?

    Wasn't there a gal who was literally spraying a playfield with a hose? Remember seeing it somewhere.

    See, it's okay because she probably remembered to pay for the hot wax at the car wash. Water beads right off.

    It’s actually ok as long as you spray everything good with WD-40 the day before.

    See? Some people here give that stuff a bad rap.
