Default Cleaning bare metal models?

Hey guys,

What do you use/techniques to help get rid of fingerprints, oils, etc. from your models? My Eastern DC-10 is a bit rough - tried just cotton rag but didn't do much.



Thanks!
Kyle

Thanks - I tried using water, dish soap, vinegar, magic eraser, and polishing wax. None of it affected it. Pretty sure it's oils and tarnishing under a clearcoat. Oh well.
