If you are using the kerosene be EXTREMELY careful because it is very flammable! I would suggest using rubber gloves to keep the nasty smell off your hands. First pour a little kerosene on a folded up rag. A little bit goes a long ways so don't use too much. Now just pretty much scrub away with the rag and clean off the board as good as you can.
Once you are done with this part, get a dry rag and wipe over the whole thing to be sure the kerosene is off. I would let the board sit for a while before proceeding to the next step (to ensure there is no kerosene left on the board).
