    andre30496 (1 mies. temu) #25854710yea it' a college dorm I mean I'm willing to clean my figures a lot if necessary but not sure how often I should be doing it

    Before I had displays. I look the figure bases to indicate if they need a dusting or not.

    As long you keep your dorm tidy and clean regularly. You don't have to worry as much about them.

    Simple Collect 7 dragonballs->Wish dust disappears from your room->Profit
    Works for me :) or i wish it could...

    For all those years its been a major headache for me.At first its funny to dust your scales once a week but when you are over the 70+ mark and have also many small stuff and action dolls things are not so fun anymore.

    I bought some detolfs and put two glass sheets in my bookstore where i keep the other important stuff.I would recomend doing that when you can/afford.

    Since glass is expensive and heavy where i have the small stuff i plan to get one acrylic sheet since its cheap and light.

    They make all the difference.Sometimes detolfs are have bigger gaps but its better still than left out.Now i dust like every 6months or so.
    I use swiffer duster and a can of compressed air.Works good but plan on trying a antistatic one and heard that those things women use to put make up also does a damn good job on the tough places.If anyone knows more i`ll be glad to hear.

    Also another major mistake is to let dust build up.It get so many layers and gets stuck in hard to reach places like hair or in action figures so its imposible to get rid of it either with compressed air or with other means.I guess only though a water bath but i havent tried it though there is a blog about it i think.

    Ceci (1 mies. temu) #25849210Yes, dust can get in.
    It really depends on now often your room gets dusty (I assume college dorms?). Do you clean your room often?

    andre30496 (1 mies. temu) #25846542Don't they have slits between them that allow dust in?

    You can adjust the door hinges on Ikea Morliden doors. Mine have no gap down the middle of the front where the two doors meet. I squished them together so they're touching. On the sides there is around a 1-2mm gap since the hinges need space to open the metal doors. Overall I don't have any dust issues even with the 1-2mm gap.

    If you want a relatively cheap alternative to protect your figures from dust, there are plastic display cases like this one sold at AmiAmi: www.amiami.com/.... You can also find others in Japanese stores like Amazon.co.jp and Rakuten with many different sizes. Basically, it's a hard plastic base with a foldable plastic sheet that you fit into the base and a lid to cover the top. The plastic sheet that forms the walls of the display case is soft, but firm enough to stand straight. You can even stack another case on it, if the contents are not heavy.
    I'm using a few of these plastic cases and I'm really satisfied with them. The plastic sheet is very clear, so you have a pretty decent view of the inside and the figures are sealed very well, so no dust can get inside. The only downside is that case walls are flimsy so they don't offer protection like acrylic or glass, and you cannot stack heavy things on top of it.

    andre30496 (1 mies. temu) #25846503what's weatherstripping? "WeatherStripping that is 3/8in Wide x 3/16in Thick x 10ft Long Black and has a backside that is ready to apply straight from the package (and Scissors!).You will most likely need atleast (4) 10ft rolls for 3 Detolfs this retails in NYC for around 10$ (yes only 10$ to never dust again lol)."

    If you clicked on my blog all your questions will be answered. If you dont want to use a glass case then you would haveto get acrylic plastic containers that are stupid expensive. Leaving figures out in the open is not my cup of tea because the dust after a while will start attacking the paint (including the risk of damaging the figure from constant manual dusting). Here is a (correct size for Detolf) weatherstripping example you can find them at any hardware store: www.runnings.co...

    take123 (1 mies. temu) #25840176I just use glass cabinet bookshelves from Ikea. They are sealed enough such that I never had real dust issues over 2 years I had them. Occassionally I may have to dust the black base stands on my figure but the dust is not bad at all (compared to not having glass doors).
