ehh, I think I messed it up... - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Thread Starter 
well I tried the boiled water + vinegar method as mentioned (I used distilled water for this), I had let water boil and then through the piece with all the gunk in. within a minute of sitting there I started to notice it to remove a bit of it. (or at least I was hoping it was... lol) anyways after 10 minutes of sitting in boiled water it looked just a tad bit cleaner however a new blemish appeared on the bottom side that wasn't there before. I suppose this block does not like me very much. well too tired to continue for now. will try to buy some CLR tomorrow and see what that does.

It could be that the plating on the block was not applied correctly, and the attempts to clean it are causing the imperfections to show.
