Sid, in all of your knowledge of pipe restoration can you help me out in what to do about restoring some well used meerschaums . If you look at my "Vintage Pipes" thread you'll see the ones I'm referring to. 2 are detail carved and one is basic and fairly cleaner than the other two but I'd like any tips you have on how to clean them of stains ,if you know of any. Thank you ,sir .
