So I am refinishing interior parts and have a couple of hinges with lots of nasty oil and varnish build up where the PO oiled everything. I have the hinges off of the various parts now. One is a long piano hinge from the head door, not brass, some type of steel. Another is a smaller piano from the icebox lid- items like that.

What do you all clean them with? Wondering if the sprays, like WD40 will harm the finish. Any suggestions?

I did a bit with WD40 and did not help much. I like the idea of the hand cleaner and have plenty of the other items if that does not do it.

They appear original and not rusty after 40+ years so I am sure they are stainless.

Thanks for all the great suggestions so far.
