Old *white* cotton tee-shirts are just fine. Beware of anything colored: the
solvents in the stain may leach dye out of the fabric.

Nobody ever left footprints in the sands of time by sitting on his butt.
And who wants to leave buttprints in the sands of time?
While we're talking about staining and rags. FWIW this past week my son was
scheduled to meet with his board for his annual evaluation. Seems the
president of the board postponed the meeting because her daughter's house
had just burned down as a result of some rags that were used for staining.
Fortunately, the kids toys were saved.
Well, according to Homer Formby in his 70's era 30-minute commercials
(before the word "infomercial" was invented) you should use your SWMBO's old
panty hose. But I've always used old cotton socks, tshirts, towels, etc.
whatever I could get a hold of. I'm too cheap to buy rags unless there's no
They work pretty well, actually. By the time they have been washed 4000
times, there's very little lint left.
When my sisters cleaned out the closets after our mom passed away, they
brought me 4 large bags of dish cloths, sheets, diapers, whatever, washed
as clean as could be, for shop use. Many had come from _her_ mom's place.
It's nice to be able to pad shellac using linen...
Maybe in 5 years, I'll need to buy rags.
You have to use panties that came off a wimminz of an appropriate color for
the job. Blonde's panties for light colored stains and pickling work,
brunette's panties for darker walnut-like stains, redhead's panties for
doing cherry or red oak type stains. If she's shaved or dyed, and you
can't tell the hair color, then you can also substitute skin color.
Caucasian for light stains, African-American for walnut, or Native
American, Latina, or maybe Asian for the more reddish in between shades.
Also, if you plan to do a lot of staining of differnet colors, tell SWMBO
you're going to have to start assembling a harem. If you don't have a
harem, you'll have to go looking for these wimminz out in public somewhere,
and tell them you need to stain their panties.
Isn't this in the Flexner book?
