Good Afternoon, Does anybody see any issues with using DAWN ULTRA to clean, remove lint, and possible fingerprints from the Dansco album slides. Would it cause the slides to develop a cloudy film or emit any kind of chemical gases affecting the stored coins' surfaces? I will be looking forward to your comments and other possible cleaning solution options. Thank you.

Interesting question. My Dansco slides/album was used when I bought it.
I never liked the clarity of the plastic slides.

Not all that keen on the idea of slides in direct friction contact with the coins.

In a dry atmosphere, the slides can electrostatically attract dust, which can come between the coins and the slide, with the possibility of hairline scratching to the coins.
I have seen rare cases where the slide can become milky or develop a yellowish stain over time. Easy to make your own with clear stiff plastic sheet recovered from food containers or toy or tool packaging.

That is why I use Mylar/cardboard flips in nonPVC album pages. The flips also allow for the write-up of each coin.
If you wish to relocate the coin to another area in your collection, the write-up travels with it.

I'm also uncertain about Dawn but I know personally I'm so afraid of introducing chemicals that I won't use anything but a moistened tissue.

If your slides are yellowed or warped and need a cleaning that badly, it may well be worth just remaking them anew.

You could do a test by trying it on a part of the slide that is normally covered.
I would use a very dilute solution of the Dawn if you are going to try it, leave it in contact with the slide for the minimum time (i.e., wipe with it, rather than soaking in it). Then rinse with distilled water.
Most detergents are complicated synthetic chemical cocktails, so the concerns expressed by others are well founded. Some plastics can "scalp" components out of liquids if they are in contact for some time, then release them later. If you ever store orange juice in a polyethylene container, you can observe this effect. The container scalps substances like limonene out of the OJ, altering the flavor of the juice, and transferring an odor to the container..

Not sure about Dansco but I've cleaned Whitman Album slides in the past with ordinary, no named dish soap and no problem.
