I first heard about this here, but I found their instructions lacking.
The pictures below show what we want -- and what we have.
Step 1: Materials.
1. Some Greased Lightning Cleaner.
2. A plastic dish of some kind.
3. A brush.
4. Something with a coating that you just can't stand. I had a new folding knife which was a particularly nasty shade of olive drab.
Step 2: Go!
Remove the spray cap of your Greased Lightning.
Put your parts in your dish.
Pour some Greased Lightning in there!
Step 3: Scrub time.
Constantly agitate the solution.
Depending on the thickness of the anodizing, it may take a little while. My knife was HAIII -- which means that it has a thick layer of anodizing. It took about 15 minutes to get it totally clean.
Step 4: Admire Your Clean and Beautiful Parts.
Look at your clean, non-ugly parts. Great!
Oh bother. Now you have to put the thing back together.
