    I know we can soak Vulcanite stem into OxiClean or bleach for restoration.
    But will that be safe to soak Lucite, Amber, Bakelite Stem into them?

    I have a few new purchased meerschaum pipes whose stems are filled with a lot of tar.
    Is there a good way to remove those substance easier and allow me to use less pipe cleaners?
    Maybe soak them into alcohol?

    Thanks
