Oxidation

I bought the complete set of Decatur products including the Haze Away and Shine Bright. I used the Haze Away first since it says Step 1 on the bottle. I use Shine Bright second as it says Step 2 on the bottle. As I buff the Shine Bright on the pipe stem the stem turns white. I did 5 other pipes at he same time and it worked beautifully. This one stem is giving me trouble. I tried each step several times. Tried buffing when wet. Tried expanding the dry time to no aval. This one stem keeps turning white the more I buff it. Any ideas? Other then that super happy with the products.

    Rub some olive oil on it, let it sit for about 5 minutes and wipe off. Should be shiny and black like new.

    I called and they said on vulcanite to just use the Haze Away and not the Shine Brite. Though Shine Brite says you can use it on vulcanite it is more for acrylic stems. Working on the stems again. Will try the olive oil

    So I went back and used Haze away only. Looked good. To finish it off I hit it with the Briar Wax. They all look great now and ready to smoke. Pretty easy to get a pipe restored if there is no damage to repair.
