Cleaning Question

Hey guys I played for the first time and after playing I noticed that my clothes had this glue like sticky substance on it. I asked some of the other veteran players and they told me it was old paint that hit the walls of the park, unfortunately what I failed to ask was how to remove it. I tried washing my clothes with warm water and soap but the substance is still there, so do you guys have any idea on how to remove it without damaging or discoloring the fabric?

Use Windex, or something similar. That usually does the trick.

Try soaking it for a while first.
Some paint uses a type of wax in the fill

cool/warm (low setting...like Silk or something) Iron and a paper bag.

Put the ironing board down, then the clothing on the board, brown paper bag over the clothing, and run the iron back and forth over it...minimizing the heating time...BUT..gradually getting longer and longer. You don't want to burn the nylon, just melt the wax into the paper bag.


Try the other 2 methods first.

the iron sounds like a good way to easily ruin something

Oh - it is...

It worked better with older jerseys, but my C12 jersey gets the waxy crap built up on the forearm nylon. The only way I have found to get it off is the method stated above - though I haven't thought to try windex...

spray and wash didn't work. Oxy clean didn't work. Soaking it didn't work. Pre-treating it didn't work.

yea if it really is wax, you're going to have to find a way to loosen it up. I'm so glad my field doesn't have that garbage. If they do, it must be some lower end stuff. I've shot the rec sport before and it's a weird fill, but there's no residue like that.

Draxxus Silver, Frostbyte, RecSport, Valken Pro, & Valken Graffiti.

It's stained my C11 and C12 jerseys - but not my PE jersey...

I have been shooting draxxus paint forever
I cant say how many tournaments i have played where all i shoot is draxxus paint
I used to love shooting marbalizer though and a black ball but i dont remember the name it never worked in my shockers due to the eyes not reading it. The paint shot very well in the other guns i owned
