Quick Tip: Cleaning Antique and Vintage Tin Toys


It makes sense to take the best care you can of your tin toy collection. Don't ruin the value by careless cleaning.

Just dust the toy toys, I think putting wax on them is not a good service and rust does not clean off.

If the toys need cleaning, the best way is with plain soap and water. Just pat them dry or put them in a warm spot, like the kitchen. It you make sure the toy is dry before putting it away, it's not going to rust. Rust takes a long time to occur! If the toy is greasy, try using a little bit of WD-40.
