Dear Barbara,
you could try Sat. Lithium Carbonate in Alcohol. For benches and floors
create a small well with plasticine or Linseed Putty, and pour in solution
to soak. You should get noticable results in 3-5 minutes. For immediate
stains only a few seconds application is required using a bit of paper
towelling. If yopu are using Bouin's as a mordant and decolourise by water
rinsing for 20-30 mins as in Gomori's One Step Trichrome, you can also use
this solution, but only as a quick dip, then rinse with water to see if
decolourised, and if not, then give another quick dip and water rinse- will
take 30 mins off your Trichrome time.
Regards Mike (Downunder)
