How to clean acetal?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I got a used pump and pump top the other day, and it's pretty dirty. So I decided that I would clean it. Would it be ok to wipe it down with isopropyl alcohol? Thanks biggrin.gif

rubbing alcohol is fine. acetal is pretty tough.

Novus is a good chemical for cleaning and polishing plastics. Although that is not always necessary. You may want to consider a soft cloth and gently clean with a mild soap and water. Rinse thoroughly to remove any soap. I personally prefer to use a soft cloth to avoid scratching, but some people use a soft toothbrush. I'm not saying anything bad about alcohol, I have used it with success also.

Good luck with those screws, I know what a pain they can be. I have spent hours at work removing stripped out hardware.

Thanks I think I'll try the mild soap and water. I used a toothbrush on my waterblock and that worked fine, so I may try that too.

I maybe have to just go at the screws with a dremel. The threads are practically circles. I have no idea what the previous owner was doing :/
