Cleaning up foamies?
This question has probably been asked and answered many times, but my RCgroups Search-fu is failing me, so my apologies in advance.
I'm running an FMS V-tail glider made from EPO and a Radian Pro made from "Z-foam". The gliders are well loved, but are starting to collect a faint patina of fingerprints from handling and dark green streaks from our landing carpet at the field - particularly the V-tail.
I'd like to clean them up a bit, but before I just start slathering on dishwasher soap , is there any information out there about what kinds of cleanup products are safe and effective on different kinds of foam?

Avoid all cleaners that use solvents ... avoid all cleaners that have a petroleum base ...
Both above have distinct spirit / alcohol or gasoline aromas.
Windex, Toilet Cleaner (test first), bathroom cleaners ... these are usually fine ...
Make sure you 'rinse' of well ... some of these produce a brownish stain if left ... due to the small amount of Phosphoric in some of them.
I also test any scraps that break of from hard landings etc. - with paint thinners, Turpentine etc. Good info for cleaner / painting etc.
