Olson, that gets added automatically. There's a scr-ipt that runs in the background that inserts links based on keywords. It is a way for the site operators to generate some additional revenue. I think most of us ignore it.

Thanks. Now I have one more reason to be thankful that the Ericson owners' site is privately owned and chooses not to accept advertising.

BTW, I am not talking about the conversion of gear-name words to links to stuff-for-sale on this site -- those words remain and just look a bit funny with their little underlines.
Adding text that the author never said, OTOH, is just wrong.

Baby sterilizing fluid is bleach at 1% instead of 5% so you can just use bleach watered down 1part:4 parts water




Bleach works and is safe.

Re: Grime on interior teak

Hi Hudsonian!

Generally, it is best to try the least caustic remedy first like some of the oils & cleaners mentioned (eg., Murphy's oil soap).
If result is still unsatisfactory ramp up to de-natured alcohol with a scotch brite pad.
If that still leaves stains I'd next try Oxalic acid in the form of Barkeeper's Friend.
Oxalic acid IS the main ingredient of 1 part teak cleaners.
If that does not work than dynamite will make the stain go away! :Just Kidding
