Hi I'm Rachel Yatuzis and I'm going to show you how to clean your plastic collectibles. Shrek may not be so sentimental to all people, but some people like him and if he comes in a McDonald's Happy Meal, you want to keep him, keep him nice and shiny and clean. Also you can collect little cars. There's tons of plastic collectibles you can have and you want to keep them clean. I know my grandmother always had little plastic toys around the house and she had some from when my older sister was a kid that my son still plays with now. And this is how she taught me to clean the plastic stuff. Always have vinegar on hand. And put just a splash into a sink of water, use hot water because they'll dry faster. And just get a sponge and just go over your collectibles. The vinegar is going to be harmless to the plastic, it's not going to hurt anything. With Shrek he has a battery in him so you don't want to submerge him in the water, you just want to go over him with the sponge and try not to twist his head around too much. But it's that simple, just try to get all the cracks and crevices and that should do it. I'm Rachel Yatuzis and that is how you clean plastic collectibles.
