    just make sure you do the washing with mild soap (like dawn) and water first. you don't need to scrub fiercely, but a toothbrush or the like to get to the corners helps. there's dust, and probably some kind of releasing agent, in those mold impressions. even after a good cleaning, you'll still see some of that color on the cloth or paper towel when you oil them.

    Been over a year now since my original post, and the chips I used this method on look great still and they haven't had to be oiled since.

    I have another 1000 in the collection, so seems the process will start again soon. :)

    Stibnite,

    Thanks for the great guide. I finished oiling my Dunes CC last night and wow they look stunning. These pics are after the last step of applying the second coat to the edges only. Obviously I am not expecting this high gloss look to last but it still looks pretty cool for now.

    Even if the chips lose some of the oiled gloss I am fine with that. I just really disliked the smell and dusty appearance out of box. I have a hard time imagining they can ever go back to looking like they did out of box even after years of play.

    Really pumped to use these.
