Pour some ammonia in a cup (old magarine container), put it in a hefty back with the hinges (OUTSIDE), close the bag, check in a few hours up to 24 hours and you'll have bare hinges, re-paint or spray with a clear finish before rust sets in. Could use a wire brush or try a paint remover.

Re: Tips On Removing Oil Based Stain From Hinges


Thanks for the tip but I really dont want to take them off and they are not really that bad just the h/o is a bit parnickity, just thought there might be a easy solution to it rather than taking off.

If not too bad, maybe a single edge razor?

What kind of hinges?
Like, interior door brass plated type deals?
Or like exterior Barn/Gate black forged type deals?

Any of that will rape and pillage the clearcoat on the hinges, unforunatly... being a stain, those new hinges are screwed.

try rubbing stain on the same spots, let it sit a little bit. See if that does it.

might be too late.
