    Blue-Job, Oh Boy!!!!!

    So I asked a friend what the best thing was to clean my pipe...

    The response... "Blue-Job"

    I was a bit taken back at first until I googled it and realized he wasn't making an uncomfortable proposition.

    So I got this ting and yes....it took out the browning on the pipes as advertised. On the other hand contrary to the advertisement, it did NOT remove the road tar and boot burns from the pipes.

    Short of taking a brillo pad to these things, what can I do to get rid or the stuck on burnt on gook?

    Thanks

    Try Easy-Off Oven Cleaner. I used this on my Shovel Head's Pipes all of the time. I had a oil leak that sprayed the pipes and it took it right off. Just make sure the pipes are warm not hot, then spray it on and then wipe it off with a cotton rag.

    Gonna try this tonight.... I'll let you guys know what happens.....

    I think the gook is a rag that burned itself on the pipes... My kids deny it.

    In my house this person named "I dunno" seems to do everything.

    If you catch the bugger, give um a kick in the backside for me.

    He was staying with me for a while until I told the girls they were responsible for whatever "I Dunno" did, then they kicked him out and "Not me" and "Nobody" moved in.

    Trust me, I dunno, not me, or nobody will reside in your house until the children are well into their teenage years. Hell, even if they move back in as young adults, their friends I dunno move back in with them.
    If at first you don't succeed then skydiving may not be for you.

    OK... here's the update on this.

    I looked back at my Table of the Elements and after realizing that copper is softer than Chromium, I wen ahead and used a penny to remove some of the bigger chunks of this stuck on goo.

    then I acquired some copper wool and that worked magical wonders. Then some blue job for some light polishing and now the pipes are B E A utiful again!!

    Copper Wool..... who would have thunk it.... ME THAT'S WHO!!!!!

    I didn't realize it, but I did the same sorta thing to get some woman's melted shoe off my pipes the other day. I though, gee, the scraper is a softer metal and I went for it. Never thought to pass it on. It's too easy for someone to screw up.

    The important thing to remember is to get real copper wool (or even brass wool) and not the "brown steel wool" that they sell at the supermarket.
