Unhappy How do i get silicone cloth tarnish marks off my sig 556 lower.

So i draped a silicone cloth over my sig 556 and left it over night, i was just using it as a buffer so it would not get scratched while next to another gun. well it tarnished the lower with what appears to be off grey to white marks were the cloth layed. I tried CLP and thought it got rid of it until it fully dried out then then the marks came back, its just cosmetic but it don't look great so is there a cleaning cure.

When painting rollmarks I use Baby Oil to clean of residue.If it works for you, please let me know so I can put it in my database. I have also used Testors paint thinner {hobby shop] and then the baby oil.

Ill try baby oil when i find some, but i dont see how thats going to take away the tarnish, sounds to gentle. Paint thinner sounds to harsh, any more suggestions.

Im not sure what the metal of the lower is reacting with in the cloth, silicone is what? exactly when its in a gun cloth.

battleship, try using brake cleaner. It will dry out everything, but then re-oil the entire lower and or rifle. I got a few cans here if you want to come by, im in P Hill as well. You showed me the marks at the range on Sunday.
