Hey all

I have a few figures with permanent marker stains on the bottom of their feet.

Any sure fire ways to clean these?

Unfortunately it's likely to be 'soaked' into the plastic. You can try magic eraser which is basically fine sandpaper. Any chemicals ( zit cream, peroxide.... ) are just bad news. I'm not a huge fan of lighter fluid or rubbing alcohol either.

Not to worry ... I will eventually use them for diorama scenes.

These are now what are classed by some as "Army Builders" - just a dumb term for shit quality figures !!!
