I'm hoping someone here will have knowledge to help me.
I was cleaning up a bought-at-auction Record #82 quick release vice (10 quid!).
I'm sure people are familiar with the sort of stuff that was crudded on to the main screw; a pleasing decades old mix of grease, oil and black stuff.
Having rendered the vice wonderfully functional, I left the workshop.
Later, I want back in to check on something.
AND MUST HAVE PICKED UP A PIECE OF GREASE OF MY SLIPPER.
Subsequently, my lounge carpet (quite light in colour) has little dark spots, around a stride apart.
I cannot believe I'm the first and only person to have done this, especially in present company...
Does anyone have a favourite trick to remove the grease and dirt without spreading it further (the obvious problem if I try a solvent) and without wrecking the carpet?
