Removing stains??? What have you been up to? Shocked

Seriously, I swear by these things - cover them in oil, and get polishing...

Those seem a bit pricey though - if I remember correctly they're cheaper from MacSalvors at Camborne :-)

Hi Ryan,

Try Brasso its abrasive but not hard on the surface, might do the job.
Let us know how you got on.

Mix a bit of Ferterlizer up with water make into a paste, wicked .
Make sure you have some rubber gloves on if you have a cut on your hand it kills you Laughing
