Since there was a recent thread about kerosene, et al, lamps,
this popped up on another list and on topic.
No, this is not spam, its boat related. For Halloween, I took an
oil lantern off my boat to illuminate one of the tables of goodies
by a driveway bonfire we have hosted the last couple of years.
I cranked the wick out to get the brightest flame possible, and at the
end of the night the inside of the lens was completely coated in soot.
Today I got around to cleaning it before taking it back to the boat.
I went through an array of typical glass cleaners and none took off
the most stubborn soot.
Then I remembered the miracle cleaner for the residue left by
adhesive labels: PEANUT BUTTER.
Sure enough, peanut butter cleans off that suborn soot off of a lamp
as well has the soot impregnated in my hands from the cleaning
(and now my hands are silky smooth).
Peanut Butter, the miracle cleaner.

Reminds me of the time that the son of a friend was shelling black
walnuts and stained his hands. His father and I both told him it'd just
have to wear off. An hour or so later he came into the room with clean
hands. When we asked him how he got it off he said "Purify mouthwash".
Neither of us will ever put that stuff in our mouth again!

Easier than Rosonal Lighter Fluid? PB would seem to create a mess
of it's own. I was so happy when someone introduced me to the lighter
fluid approach. As a kid, my dad handed me a razor blade and said
"Here, scrape at this (on the inside of the windshield) for a while".
A razor blade, Windex, and paper towels--you thought you had it
tough...lol! : )

I don't know if there's anything wrong with lamp oil other than... who
I would venture a guess that there are 100 houses with both peanut
butter and cooking oil in them to every 1 that has lamp oil... and even
then, only 1 in 10 of those have a resident who know what it is. :-)
