What’s a good way to maintain / tidy up our ‘standard’ NZLARPs swords.
They look at lot like the ‘Ready for Battle’ swords on Paddywhack, but I don’t know what they’re made of (do they differ in terms of core, outer, and spray coat? I’m new to all this).
Specifically, I have one that is a bit sticky now, and has fluff on the blade because of this. It didn’t come off with just a warm water rub and I’m reluctant to blindly try detergent / solvents without knowing what’s safe for the material or might dissolve stuff.
So what would be good here?
Warm soapy water, and if that doesn’t work, what other cleaner might do?
And when that’s done, is there something I should spray on it / coat it with to protect it? I’m not certain why this one has got sticky and fluffy and other swords I see haven’t.
