 Acetone for cleaning pvc?
Author: exapprentice30 (MA)

I had some scraps of pvc and I cleaned them with acetone and it made the look better than new. Can acetone replace pvc cleaner before priming?

Anything that removes dirt, etc. is cleaning it and softening the skin. I've used lacquer thinner in a pinch.

Acetone is dangerous if not handled carefully. Don't breathe it or get it on your skin or in your eyes. Very serious stuff.

I know it is very dangerous I was just doing a experiment to see if it worked as well as pvc cleaner wearing gloves and googles and working outside in a well ventilated area and letting the rag dry and disposing of it properly.
