    I have refinished my M1 Garand stock that was horribly soaked with years of accumulated oils and old paint (rack number?)
    I ran it through the dishwasher with a common dishwasher powder. It came out beautifully and was much easier than messing with harsh chemicals.
    If you do this, don't use the heat drying setting.

    The Gene Pool is in need of a lot of Chlorine!

    Better yet, drain the entire pool!

    Set it out in the sun for a few hours to make sure the staining doesn't come back when it gets hot...

    I had looked at dish-washer also! Good thing Susan is in La La land right now! Susan has a nose like a Grizzly Bear! She can smell stuff a dog can't! If the stock leaves a smell in that dish-washer! I'm toast!

    LOL!

    Just run it again with detergent while empty. I did an M1 handguard and forearm in the dishwasher and they turned out looking like new before linseed oil. (moved on quickly to Tung Oil for future jobs)

    LOL. It did not leave any odors or residue. My wife is the same way.
