The simplest way is to just wipe off the verdigris with a cloth. I've done this in the past with good results. Some folks may advocate use of a metal cleaner or polish, but I'd try what's simplest, not to mention potentially detrimental to the leather, first.What would be the best way to clean the green goo on the metal parts (as seen in the pics) without damaging the metal or leather?
An old tooth brush works for me...but be careful not to rub the "green goo" into the leather.One again.. Thank you guys for your help. I do have another question though. What would be the best way to clean the green goo on the metal parts (as seen in the pics) without damaging the metal or leather?
Ouch!!! No Jareth,Hey Jon is your avatar a picture of you crucified by frog swappers?
Yo Chip,"Frog swappers?" Must have missed something at the water cooler this morning.
I guess Jon must be a big fan of the ebayer that goes by Glock Twenty, who strips all the bayonets of frogs and sells them separately? He's not so much a frog swapper then a frog separator.
Ya Chip...ya like that!! You'd think at least he'd say it was gonna be for sale, and then give the guys who helped him out a shot at it. JonPostscript: the bayonet, frog and tag are now listed on a large, international auction site with a starting bid of $149.99, complete with our free translation.
