Default Cleaning a dirty or greasy or dry collector stock

Hello, I was reading the CMP's article on cleaning a dirty or dry stock. They suggest pure tung oil and "to get some cheese cloth, the funny open weave stuff".

I found the tung oil, but while looking online at cheese cloth, I am not seeing an open weave. Can anyone help or point me to this? thanks Mike

Hi Mike, cheesecloth is just a thin "open weave" untreated cloth. Any hardware store carries it. It's thin and not too tightly woven, so don't read to much into this. Regards, Mike

I actually used a gauze pad & it seemed to work just fine.

Finding cheese cloth...no problem. Pure Tung Oil on the other hand, was a bit difficult to locate. Finally had success, but it took a determined hunt.
