Is there a readily available pen for marking clothes labels?
I have a problem knowing which clothes can go into the
washer/dryer and which can't. It would help if my wife
could mark those clothes that require special handling.
Are you saying that Gary Brown and Greg Buggy are one in the same?
They are the only posts I could find with a similar topic re sharpies.
If so can you tell me how you came to this conclusion? I don't
dispute it nor am I trying to be derisive, I'm just very curious.
Also, what is the nitro solvent to which you refered? It is some kind
of hydrocarbon? I think I once saw a gun cleaner by that name.
And, while I don't know your background, you seemed fairly
knowledgeable about the solvents. Any idea how a HC based solvent
like brasso can clean and polish metal ( with any abrasive compounds
A hodepodge of odd questions to be sure, but I am a very curious
person. A bit miswired perhaps, but curious non the less.

I don't recall suggesting, in any way, to even the slightest degree,
"that Gary Brown and Greg Buggy are one in the same" person. I don't
have a clue, and frankly I couldn't care less. I responded to the
messages: not the messengers.
Yes, nitro solvent is a hydrocarbon concoction for cleaning guns.
My knowledge of solvents is only very slightly beyond that of the
average person. Solvents are interesting to me because of what they can
do--and undo. I also enjoy the scent of most solvents.
I'm not a chemist, but metal usually tarnish as a result of oxidation.
The opposite chemical reaction is reduction. So a solvent merely
provides a medium for a reduction reaction. Perhaps a more knowledgeable
poster will see this and set us straight.
I recall that Brasso contains petroleum distillates, but somehow I never
considered "HC based". I do consider it abrasive, but "abrasive" is a
