I was a bit skint so i ended up soaking it in hot water with washign up liquid. left it overnight and the paint came off with a scrub form an old toothbrush (had to use a toothpick to get the fiddly bits out though).

The repaint looks SO much better.

It's already been mentioned, and you've stripped it, but Dettol.

Even works on plastic, though it's a gloopy mess for plastics. Metals, however, clean fairly well.
