    Cleaning A Used Plastic Slide

    I picked up a 5 year old Interfab X-Stream off craigslist and it needs some cleaning. I can hit it with a 3100 PSI pressure washer, but I can see there are a bunch of stains (rust/paint/etc) that won't spray off.

    Anyone know a good cleaning product for this kind of thing?

    The only description they advertise is "Extremely Durable, Impact Resistant, Space Age Plastic Construction". There's a blurb about cleaning that says

    Wash with a mild soap such as hand dishwashing soap, avoid using strong cleaners or
    abrasives. Avoid strong alkaline (such as tri-sodium phosphate) or highly acidic cleaners.
    Avoid bleach and ammonia
    I can tell you there's no way in heck dish soap is gonna get rid of some of these stains.

    It's plastic. I wouldn't worry about hurting it much. Grab some cleaners that are ok for plastic and do some small test spots. Paint??? How does paint get on a pool slide? Wd-40 might take off the rust spots.

    What did you figure out? Ours has some bad stains from leaves that we left on there too long.
