    Those Dark Stains On Wood That Won't Go Away

    I've received some Private Messages and Emails in the last month or so from Carbine owners who had great results using the methods a few of us had linked to the CMPicon post below.

    To save time I'll post my link to a cleaner for removing black marks from 'Oiled Finishes'

    Removing Stains from Teak and Walnut Furniture









    Here is a link to the original post and threads:

    Black stains on M1 Carbine stocks - CMP Forums

    My advice if interested,
    For those Rusty brown/black stains that appear almost like ink, especially those found near the buttplates... etc, Do not underestimate Bars Keepers Friend.

    I use the stuff on my skiff with every wash-up for stubborn spots and tiny rust marks (and since I'm a full time guide in the Everglades, scrubbing my skiff is something I do too often..). Can't recommend it enough for it's ability to clean without being abrasive.

    The secret ingredient in Bar Keeper's Friend is Oxalic acid. If you can find it (it used to be available in paint departments of hardware stores) it is cheap. Dissolve in water, heat and apply to the stain/rust.

    Ed reluctantly no longer in the Bitterroot
