Cleaning a Pro. finish

Post by matheus5290 » Sun Dec 05, 2010 6:24 am

I know this has been talked about before but I cant seem to find anything on it. I'v tried lots of other cleaners and nothing seems to work the best. I'v heard some random things like using water but I'm not quite sure. If anybody could help it would be much appreciated.

Rubber as in just an eraser? I mean cause thats what it looks like he's using. At first i though he meant using a rubber :P
If it's just an eraser I wonder if a white eraser would work on a Pro. Black finish. Seems like it would just leave white marks.

Yes, we use an eraser for the white. Haven't tried it on black. Mildly damp cloth seems to work fine on black from memory

I'll have to give it a shot. Thank you for the reply's and I'm still open to other ideas if anybody else has a Pro. Black finish and something has worked out. :smt006

Sorry for bringing back a dead thread but using a cloth and water worked fine on the pro finish. Cleaned it right up very nicely suprisingly. Iv tried all sorts of things and nothing else works. Cloth is cheap and water is pretty cheap :)

I'm on a Dellinger II HGS FR and damp rag did not work for me. I still see specs of white everywhere.
