    a large plastic tub and alot of purple power, mix with water and let it soak for 2 days, or take it and get it glass beaded

    Kerosene, then rinse of the kerosene with water and make sure you blow all the water off with some compressed air. You have to rinse it be cause the kerosene will leave a film that if left there will thin out your oil.

    its best to let it soak, to break up the deposits better, you can spray and clean however there alot more work involved and wasted money on towls
