Default RE: Cleaning fuel off plane

The secret is the towels. Use Viva towels. They are more like cloth and are much more absorbant. They will remove all the residue. And about every 6 months or maybe a year, I will polish the plane with Monokote polish. It really brings back the shine and protects the Monokote. It is probably a good idea to use it when the model is brand new. I have models that are 10 and 11 years old and they look like new. But I spend about 15 minutes cleaning them after a day of flying. I turn on the TV and take my time.
I use windex. A lot of folks don't seem to like it. But I get good results. I might not actually buy the Windex brand name. I'll buy anything blue that looks like windex. Often the store's generic brand is much cheaper and works just as well.
What ever you decide to use, do yourself a favor and try the Viva towels.
