Does anyone know if anyone besides the Mennonites are paying for walnuts? If so, how much?

Thank You

In the woodturning hobby, we use green Black walnut logs, which stain the hands black. I use "wood whitener," aka "deck whitener." It's active ingredient is oxalic acid, which neutralizes iron (based) stains. Black walnut must be an iron based stain, because the Black walnut stain disappears like magic. However, it must leave a stain residue, because if one stains and neutralizes one's hands repeatedly, they seem to retain more and more stain, and removal becomes less and less complete. Not that I recommend using such harsh chemicals on one's skin routinely. If used occasionally, oxalic acid in wood whitener removes the Black walnut stain very effectively.

Does anyone have any experience with black walnut stains on a car finish. This car has a clear coat finish and the walnut has left greenish/ brown spots that bug/tar remover won't remove. I need something that won't damage the finish, but the spots are stubborn. Tx!

I don't know if this well work for you but, I always use GOOP HAND CLEANER for every stain i get on me or on something else just apply goop while material is dry, rub thoroughly, wate 20 minutes (longer for tougher stains), then wash in regular way - rinse with water - or wipe with wet cloth..

bleach "kinda" works. It does lighten it somewhat, however it doesn't totally remove it. I also Googled "wood whitener" and it appears from everything I read using the stuff on your bare skin is very dangerous and can cause burns, so watch out and be careful. The only sure fire way to remove it is let time fade it and keep washing your hands.

Lemon juice and salt, rub with a sponge.
Use immediately, or if it sets in you may have to use it several times...

My husband worked in a saw mill for years. On breaks and lunch he and the other men sat on the logs. Imagine all his shorts and his butt by the end of the week? Picture it? No soap or bleach does much good. He went to a funeral in a suit as a poll bearer. His hands were a sight. Looked like hair dye.

Bleach has a chemical reaction and makes the stains appear darker on your hands

Have you tried "Crown Spray" from Walmart.. It will remove alot of stains as long as you use it first full strength before getting it wet with water. Don't let the price fool ya since it only cost about $5 bucks a gallon and Walmart is the only place I know that carries it around here. It was made for power washers but I use it for everything except carpet stains. If you use it on carpet it will continue to remove dirt from your shoes even after it dries so do not use on carpet.

I have the same problem with Pecan stains after harvesting them. I used bleach, paint thinner, goop, toothpaste, comet, fingernail polish remover, and I still have the stained hands..I will use the stuff from walmart.
