I did a thread search and didn’t really see a straight answer. The game is Demolition Man. The sheet of plastic translite back where it use to be white is dirty brown. I assume it’s from it being in a smoky bar at some point in its life. My gut is telling me its safe to put this in warm soapy water and lightly clean with with a sponge, but I’m afraid to try it until I hear some ideas. Anyone have a good method for this?

There may be a good way to do this, but I was not able to find one. I tried to clean my TZ translite with simple green, and ended up removing part of the artwork. So be careful. Not sure if water will be a good idea or not

novus 1 and a microfiber rag, rubbing lightly, has always worked well for me.

Quoted from bigehrl:

This is the best way I have found as well. Novus 1 and a soft rag.
