ruth 1b mitt cleaning front

Postby softball66 » July 15th, 2008, 4:37 pm

Here's a Reach babe ruth 1b mitt that had a great deal of oil buildup on the front, grommets had corroded/oxidized. I started with GooGone to remove the oil and got enough out to ease our energy crisis. then went to Horseman's one step for re moisturizing and color. but still tough job to bring Ruth name, Home Run Special out of the bottom portion of mitt. Note removing the oil in the Reach logo, lost the pop it had.
