Oily vinyl

Post by jannie » Sun Sep 23, 2018 11:24 am

I have several older Berenguers that are turning oily. I thought it was from someone using linseed oil but I bought two new ones that are having the same problem and they are not painted. Is there anything that can be done to help?

If they are not painted-the older ones, take all of them and wipe down with white vinegar make sure to get into your creases also. Once you've removed the oily stuff, use a matt varnish to seal them. Air Dry Matt varnish is good enough. Try this: Deco Art Soft Touch Varnish, 8-Ounce, Clear
