Cleaning Melting Plastics off Tackle Box

Recommended Posts

I was not sure where to put this question, but I figure this is as good a place than anywhere.  I need to put my stuff in smaller plano tackle boxes to fit in my uncles back compartments of his boat.  One of those has melted plastic on it which is still sticky.  Is there anyway I can get that stuff off?  Any tricks?  Thanks!

Denatured Alcohol will work in most instances.

I soaked it in dish water which helped a little, but used a wet paper towel with some dish soap and it took alot away.  Still a little sticky so I used some fine grit sandpaper which made it a little rough, but worked to take the stickyness off

That used to happen to me a lot when i stored my plastics in the garage.  I keep them inside in the closet in a separate plastic container now.  As for getting the melted plastic off, try using a hair blower on it for a few seconds then peel it off.  The melting point for soft plastic baits is pretty low and shouldn't hurt your tackle box.
