    Dish soap or BLOicon won't hurt the rack number.

    So I took a rag and rubbed them against my mosin and enfield's stocks. The enfield basically turned it black so i'm thinking that the enfield has less patina and more dirt on the stock. while the mosin was almost clean so a simple wipe down with BLOicon my be just what it needs while the enfield needs an actual cleaning. I'll most a video showing it in the morning if i can.

    It's going to take the patina off though, the shine. You can still make it look good after though.

    BLOicon will clean the dirt off. Just wipe it on, let it soak a little and then wipe it off rubbing hard and changing rags. Make sure you dispose of the rags properly as they can spontaneously combust.
