To clean a plastic slide properly without damaging the plastic or leaving dirt behind, there are a few steps to follow. First, water from a garden hose or a water bucket can be used to clean any loose dirt from the plastic side. After the slide has been rinsed, use a soapy bucket of warm water and a sponge to scrub off any leftover dirt.

After all of the dirt has been removed from the plastic slide, it is important to dry the slide properly. Using a towel, dry the plastic components, as well as any metal areas to avoid rust and damage to the plastic. To ensure the plastic slide is clean and bacteria-free, sanitary wipes can be used on all parts of the slide.

Alternatively, plastic cleaner spray can be purchased from various online retailers and brick & mortar stores. Plastic cleaner can be a great way to clean plastic without causing any damage to the product, however it is typically a much more expensive alternative to soapy water and a sponge. Make sure to use child-safe cleaning products, and always double check to make sure there is not any leftover residue from the cleaning products that are used on the plastic slide.
