My Monopoly has some little round ball marks on the playfield, what would I use to remove them if even possible.

Magic eraser and 91% alcohol. Carefully. Don't be to aggressive,M.E. is very abrasive.

Thanks. Do I just put a dab on alcohol on the eraser and scrub? Does it matter if I go in a circle motion?

Just invest in a small buffing pad to put on your drill motor and use Novus or an automotive swirl removing compound. Much safer and will clean it all up like new.

You can put a lot of the alcohol on. The magic erasers are designed to get them good and wet, wring out the excess and then use. You don't need it to be dripping, but wet is good.

You will quickly catch on. Start nice and light in a circle and apply a little more pressure at a time until you see it is working. GO GENTLY though and take your time. You can easily go from "clean" to through the paint, but not nearly as easily or as bad as with a buffer.

After that, go to novus 2 and then some good car wax. You will be very happy with the result.

When done using the ME, you will notice the PF has no shine, but dont get discouraged (like I did) like what was mentioned above use Novus #2 and ya gonna have to put some elbow grease on applying it too. The results will be night and day, you'll be glad you used the ME to rid the ugly swirls. I did it to my HS and the colors really pop now!

After all the playfield cleanup I'd be checking to see if your balls need cleaning, or replacing.

Thanks for the heads up. Just replaced them.

Everyone else, thank you for the info.

I'll post some after pics soon.
