    Draino?

    Uh,
    I dumped a fire prism in a bucket and immersed it in draino (I was out of simple green or anything like that).

    Do you guys think it will work?

    I covered the top and it's in the washroom right now.

    Anyways, I will go to sleep.

    Hmm, not sure this is wise, I suspect it may be fine with metal minis, but worry it will melt plastic

    It's the metal part (the prism).

    It's been over two hours though, and the paint hasn't fallen off yet... now I'm worried.

    The paint is not likely to mirculously fall off, generally when I have stripped paint, which admittedly is rarely, you have to scrub it with a tooth brush (how to impress the missus) or such in warm soapy water afterwards and the metal is still a little "Tinted"

    Paint will slide of a metal mini in big chunks after it sits in Pine Sol cleaner for about 30 minutes. No freakin joke, It just slides off. You barely even have to scrub the mini with Pine Sol on it.

    Don't do this to plastics, however, it will melt them into piles of goo. Learn from my mistakes. :rolleyes:

    Hmm..
    Yeah, I heard about pinesol, simple green, and nail polish remover, etc.

    But I wanted to use something I had at home that didn't need me buying anything.

    Too bad! Draino did nothing.. after immersing it for one day.. I scrub furiously with a toothbrush and it has no effect at all!

    Man, I thought draino was strong stuff.. I guess paint is immune to draino.
