Can You Bleach a Norton Waterstone?
I'll let you know soon. :)
I have a 4000-grit Norton Waterstone that was once put away wet and the packing material in the case mildewed. Now the stone smells like mildew every time I use it.
I've had enough and, this morning, added a splash of bleach to the water it's soaking in.
Will it cause the stone to fall apart?
Will it remove the mildew smell?
Will it be replaced with a worse smell?
I have NO idea. It's bad enough to risk a $40 stone though...
Thanks for reading,
