I have my eyes on a nice composite oil can. It has a thick grease in spots on the can. It hasn't discolored it. Was wondering if there are any ideas on how to remove the grease with out damage to the can? Thanks in advance.

If it's thick and not to crusty just use a plastic razor blade or scraper with a damp cloth to soften the grease. Then it should lift off with out any major damage. Paper cans are hard to clean entirely but if you do it gently it will be ok.

Thanks, I will have to give it a try once I pick up the can.
