Differnt ways

Varying recommendations from various posters.

Try leaving it out in the sun, as cosmo oozes out, wipe with rag.

Or wrap in rags and place in black plastic trash bag in the sun.

Ovecleaner for 10 minutes and then run through dishwasher.

I used one day in the sun, wiping periodically, with oven cleaner and water rinse on a Yugo SKS stock and got it pretty clean. Let us know how it goes.

The SKS Yugo stock had to be put in the top rack. Sounds bass ackwards, but I couldn't get it to fit in the bottom without blocking the auto-rising column. In the top you can (should?) angle the stock so that the top propeller can still rotate. Lay it on its side and drop the rear low down in one corner and the front end high in the opposite corner. Worked (barely) for an SKS, dont' know if it would for something bigger. Good luck.

Diesel fuel worked on jeep parts. Still lots of elbow grease and lots of rags though. For wood, if you are trying to remove finish as well, go with Easy Off Heavy Duty oven cleaner. Anything that removes oil/grease will remove the oil finish on stock too.
