After you take it off hang it with a wire coat hanger so you can turn it around and hit it from all sides and it can dry with only the wire touching it. Hope you have a bug free place for it to dry as well. We used to wash parts in a phosphate shower before going thru a bake oven then parts got sprayed and baked again. This 100 degree weather is good for something LOL!

Just found this:

Rust-Oleum Specialty Plastic Primer Spray prepares plastic for painting with any top coat. Apply directly to plastic mailboxes, lawn chairs, storage lockers and more. Adheres to hard-to-paint surfaces.
Adheres to hard-to-paint surfaces
Renew or change the color of plastic items around the home
Choose from a variety of top coat colors

Wipe down new surfaces with a paint thinner before applying.
