The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf
Well I have tried hot water and soap and this dirt just will not come off. Its on my White Flx Predator Really dirty and it bugs me. Mark is that Goof off stuff like bad to touch with your skin or have you noticed any changes in flight after using it? I am going to go pick up a bottle though. Jamie what does the solvent base do to the discs? why is it so bad to use it? just curious. Thanks a bunch though Mark and Jamie.

But then I found the answer. It is called Goof Off. Goof Off is the name of a product you can buy in hardware stores. It will clean your disc so it looks as clean and shiny as new.
Be aware that there are two kinds of popular Goof Off products....The Solvent Based stuff and the Waterborne version called Goof Off 2. DO NOT use the Solvent Based Goof Off. No No No.....bad stuff to be messing with.
I wouldn't use either. I'd use warm dish soap and water. Scrub at your disc-retion.
Steve, any solvent based product should be used with extreme care. Goof Off is packaged in a metal container....because it will melt plastic. Not to mention the risk of chemical burns, lung tissue damage, reproductive damage and of course...brain damage.
Yes, it will turn your brain cells to mush right along with your plastic. I don't recommend the use of any solvent on any disc for the purpose of cleaning.
I use laquer thinner for heavy cleaning or stripping stamps. haven't seen it attack any of the plastics yet. that has tolulene and methanol, along with a few other things.
