I've just got some black and white detail parts. There seems to be a slightly sticky film on some areas of the parts, particularly in corners and holes. I presume that this is a residue from the support material. I can remove the film from more accessible ares with a glass brush, but is there anything I can use that will dissolve this stuff out of small holes and crevices?

Hi Bill,

I do not know how small the holes and crevices are, but you can try to use a toothbrush or something similar. Using lots of water during the cleaning will help.

Best regards,

Robert

I use a nail brush - the thing you clean your nails with. Lee Valley Tools has a great plastic nailbrush, that I always use to clean the detail materials. Use plenty of water and the support material will come out easily.
