Default how to clean plasti dip

I did a search and didn't find anything. I have plasti dipped some of my interior pieces and now i'm wondering what to use to clean it. I'm pretty sure most chemicals will mess with it since it is a cheap rubber. so what do you clean the stuff with?

would tire shine, armor all, interior cleaner work at all or would that all just kill it?

I use a lint roller because i have it sprayed on very matte and pebbley so it's like a dust magnet

I think lacquer thinner works best.

PS. Don't try that.

i have black plasti-dip on my grill and i have power washed it before without removing it. you can actually clean it pretty harshly without removing it. the only vulnerable parts are the edges.

I use Armor All. I applied the Plasti-Dip to have a matte look, so it's pretty rubbery, so it's tricky to clean.

You can't just peel it off?

When you take time to prep, primer, and paint vinyl like I did, there's no such thing as just 'peeling it off.'

from what i've read, just being persistent and just rubbing at it can get it off of anything, but i've personally never used it but was looking into it, so i'd like to know the solution to this particular problem!

Use an interior cleaner that's rubber-safe (most are).

I use Aerospace 303 on my plasti dipped center console and it works great IMO.
