  • I smeared bacon fat on my strat now it stinks

    Needing some lube on the fret board and strings for band practice that night and having left my can of finger ease spray elsewhere, I perused the immediately available lubricants and, well, bacon fat is good for a bunch of other stuff, so I dabbed some on there and it worked fine. Only now, a few days later, my fret board is starting to stink.

    How can I get this **************** off of here?

      Step 1: Put your head in an oven.
      Step 2: Turn the oven on. If you can't reach the knob have someone else do it for you.
      Step 3: ???
      Step 4: Profit.

        Also, if it smells like bacon I fail to see this as a negative.

            The Strat stinks or the bacon grease stinks like Strat?

                Bill, thank you for making me laugh harder than I have in a long time. Using the word 'raze' instead of 'raise' in that sentence just makes it the funniest thing I've ever read. Cheers to you, good sir, and your crazy typing. Usually it gives me a headache, but today? Today is a glorious day. One of laughter, sunshine, happiness, and ... umm.. cupcakes. Yeah, cupcakes, bitch. Rock on.</div>

                      Geez, it's a simple question, how do I clean my fret board, and you guys are going off into outer space talking about heads in ovens and cornholes, neither of which I have any experience with. A guy shows a little ingenuity, a little improvisational elan, and he gets whacked. In my experience, bacon improves just about everything. It seemed like a reasonable choice, didn't work out completely satisfactorily, but so what? I read one of those old blues guys, Albert King or one of them, liked chicken fat for the same purpose. Go tell him to stick his head in an oven. Ask him what his "boyfriend" uses. 'Course I think he's dead now but whatever. As I see it, I'm just carrying on the grand old tradition of applying animal fat to a strat.

                        layer after layer of lemon oil is the only thing I know to tell you to try.
                        It might take the smell away, but if it doesn't I don't know if the smell of bacon and lemons would mix well....

                            You might as well go all the way & rub some lettuce & tomato on there.

                              Sorry, you left yourself wide open. Lemon oil or Orange oil. Animal by-products and warm air don't mix well.
