Next you will tell us that you use this to keep the stems black :wink:
I don't use anything on them anymore. Once I started using a lighter and a wet paper towel to remove the oxidation, they haven't reoxidized. I also thumb buff them with toothpaste before placing them back in the closet after smoking them.

I may still better stick to traditional' methods when it comes to removing the oxidation on ebonite stems
The flame and towel method has been around for several years now. Gave it a try two years ago and really like it. I just substitute toothpaste for sanding to polish the stem afterwards.

There is no Life Force in inanimate objects. Never has been, and never will be. When electrons get transferred (in solids, anyway), they stay transferred. The end.
Meaning removing the oxidized surface layer of a stem will ALWAYS reduce its physical dimensions, however the removal is accomplished. :roll:
