CLEAN IT WITH MILK! Many years ago, Joe gave me an Ex Military, Explosives container. I loved the whole, "Star Wars" look to it which is why I accepted my gift. He told me that because it was an explosives container, there was only one way to clean it. If there were traces of Black powder, He advised using Milk. If I were to use water, there could be a chance of any powder residue, exploding-These were Joe's warnings. So, when I took it home in 2009, I washed it out with Milk, as per Joe's instructions. Needless to say Joe was joking.... Needless to say, Joe loved hearing from Carl that his joke had worked !! Bless you Joe. Joey Green.
