Be careful of this link. It does not go to the expected page. On my laptop it wound up asking if I wanted to download a "new version" of Adobe Flash Player. When I clicked cancel, it downloaded it anyway.

I believe steel wool and chainsaws should be added to "What Not to use." Is nail polish remover strong enough to remove lacquer? If it is then it should be added too.

Toothpaste or liquid Clorox can be used to polish foggy plastic auto headlamp covers.

I'm looking for grit to buff out my schmutz, but leaving a smooth surface.

I seem to remember a similar comment on Facebook suggesting a wire brush in a drill got dissed pretty badly (for removal of lacquer, not shining it.) No sense of humor over there....
