Hey Fenix,

The main purpose of washing the kit is to remove the (at times) oily mold release that can coat the casting (some casters actually use Vaseline thinned with mineral spirits that can leave a real nasty and hard to remove film over the resin parts). It depends on the caster...there are castings that come in where paintable spray mold release is used to the really nasty oil stuff. But it is always best to wash the parts as a rule of thumb.

With this being said, you need to use a soap/cleaner that will remove that mold release. many time, simple dish soap like Dawn (since it is a degreasing dishsoap) works perfect along with warm water and an old toothbrush. There are times when you may need to get a bit more aggressive and use a heavy duty kitchen cleaner degreaser (I use 509 Orange Clean for the tuff stuff), especially on the vaseline ones.

The quickest way to double your money is to fold it in half and put it back in your pocket.
