Default How To: Oil scrub videos

For those who may be interested in how to do an oil scrub to clean a stock, I've done a few videos to basically show how it is done and what is is done with.
For those wondering, this is probably the most frequently asked question in regards to my products; What do I do to clean my stock? This is not by any means the end all, but it is a tried and proven way to "see what you have" so to speak.
Materials needed;

The oil scrub itself;

And After the scrub;

Again, this is the one way I recommend most for the initial cleaning of a dirty gunstock. After a couple of these you can then decide how you may want to proceed.
Thanks, Tom

Tom, you use turpentine for your 50/50 scrub mix, but would mineral spirits work?

Mineral spirits comes from petroleum,Turpentine comes from a tree.

Turpentine tends to be a cleaner solvent and that is the reason I always recommend it. I also have it on hand.
It's ok to use mineral spirits, it's just not my preference.

Tried your turpentine/BLO scrub on some milsurp stocks this weekend, very pleased with the results! Cleaned a bunch of grunk off and brought out the grain nicely.

Thanks for the tips!
