Iv'e used something like 10-15 sprays of this in approx.2litres of hot water to clean 100 $5 kenmore lanes. They still needed some more intense scrubbing, but it worked quite well and the chips survived the process.
I am always a little afraid to clean inlayd asms, because the inlays seem to soak water quickly and then sometimes rise up and may easily peel of when shuffled because many molds have no recess.
Just picked up 300 Player's Club $1's from Jim's Black Friday sale. Loved the look and feel of a sample I got a while back, however the new batch has a very gritty and grimy feel with the occasional finger jelly spots. The inlays are also fairly large and I'm not sure how they'll handle any attempts to clean and smooth the outer areas/edges. I've already tried Magic Erasers on a few and it did a decent job but required a lot of elbow grease/picking with the fingernails to get the finger jelly spots off.
I soaked my Kenmores for upwards of an hour in a mild solution of hot tapwater and Palmolive dish detergent. Never had any trouble with the inlays, of any kind, even after vigorous scrubbing with a toothbrush. The A-mold may just be unusually durable.
My personal experience with the Magic Eraser was unimpressive, but your mileage may vary.
I did the same with Palmolive pure + clear. I soaked them with this in warm water for about 20-30 minutes. Then I cleaned them with a battery toothbrush. Then rinsed and then came the hard part...... I had to pick all the finger gum from the "A".s and most other areas where it collects. Very time consumming and a pain in the A**.
I have cleaned all but about 75 of the Reds. and can't wait until I'm done.
ASM are soooooooo much harder than Paulsons to clean. Haven't oiled them yet.
The Player's Clubs are the fleur-de-lit mold and have somewhat of a different feel than the A-molds... almost a plastic kind of smoothness to them (without the grit at least). Inlays also kind of look like stickers and as if they would not take too kindly to water. I'll give them a short soak-and-scrub on one or two and see how that goes.
i never used it on ASM white labels (mine are all black labeled and i dotn think i ever over-oiled the white label chips i have) so look into whether or not anyone had it soak in and show as ring-around-the-inlay like it can do with most all BCC's and some Paulsons (TRKs hold up like champs).
Generously apply around the outside, a schmear across the face.
Let sit in the rack overnight to drip.
Next day wipe down faces on a medium-fluffy towel (plan in on it getting colorstained-cut up from the chip-edges / ruined)
They may still sweat oil and need another wipe or two days later (and lint removal) but they come out sparkling and not dried out from soap/harsh cleaners.
Its not great at really bad color-bleed removal and I never tried it on casino level gunk.
But as general mainenance it's my choice.
I have frequently considered this but never tried it. Since Paulsons are cleanable using so many methods, I've never had to resort to oil. But if this doesn't hurt ASMs or the inlay (biggish "IF") it should be a great method.
