Stain removal *PIC*

Had a demo the other day and talked about the staining sometimes left on wet wood. A reaction of iron oxides, picked up from sharpening, touching the tools, adjusting the tool rest etc. with the tannins in the wood.
Remedies abound. Some quite caustic. My favorite is just plain lemon juice. Squirt it on, rub it in (it even comes with its own applicator, a wedge) and the stains disappear, even the ones on your hands... An added benefit is you find all the little nicks, cuts and scrapes on your hands. A quick rinse and left to dry, the piece is ready to sand and finish. No harsh chemicals or neutralizing required. Here is a little bowl with some light staining.

And a few seconds later... no more stain.
