I'm sure this is not the first time this has happened to someone: the very first time I let someone use my cabin this past winter apparently someone used a ski glove to open/close or otherwise handle the brass door on my wood stove! (Yes, my understanding is that alchohol was involved...) Anyway now I have all this melted plastic (nylon from the glove) stuck and burned onto the polished brass. Can anyone give me some advice on how to get it off? I have automotive rubbing compounds, jewelers rouge, buffing wheels etc. but I don't think that's going to touch this stuff. Should I try a wire brush wheel? Acid? Super-fine sandpaper? Please help! We are going up next week and I would like to get started on it if possible.
