    I don't know - but I wouldn't be using a paraffin heater in one of those.... :#

    Goodness me...plastic and flames don't belong together. Scary...if you can clear the dirt with washing it off I reckon you'll be OK. But please don't try to heat a flimsy temporary greenhouse...

    Try soapy water - shower gel or bar soap is less aggressive than washing up liquid.
