    Removing grease

    I took the oak doors off to start finishing and got a fingerprint stain on the bare wood. Actually, my finger had grease on it from the hinge . How should I clean this off the surface to avoid a permanent stain under the finish?

    I'm planning on shellac for a seal coat the Hybrivar for a topcoat. Any suggestions are appreciated.

    I usually wipe with lacquer thinner, then re sand again Nick
