1952 Halda Portable Typewriter

The story of how I acquired this (now gorgeous and working) Halda, and a few other non-working portables. will be told in a day or so. In the meantime, I'll sing the praises of a cleaning method I use, which is especially good for getting any grime out of "crinkle" paint work.

Congratulations of the restoration!
Your cleaning method for crinkle paint looks similar to mine.

Ooh, you can still get that stuff? Looks very tasty! :D

wow, beautiful green on that Halda. What is this magical foam?

Robert Messenger said...

I believe it is/was called something like Bubbles in the US. The active ingredient is Monoethanolamine.

Thanks, Robert. Will have to go on the hunt for something similar in the UK
