Blackened lathe ways: how to clean?

Aage Rendalen
>I knew that oak would stain the lathe ways because of its high tannin contents but was not prepared for cherry to do the same. Now my lathe is quite black on top and my hands are badly stained. What do you recommend I do, and, short of covering the lathe, is there a way to keep this from reoccuring?
