Just got back from a delightful couple of days hiking in the Cathedral Range in Victoria Australia, and I'm washing all the pots and plates, and cursing the black soot that comes off my Trangia alcohol fuel stove. Putting it through the dishwasher seems to have no effect, and it spreads to everything you touch.
Are there any pro-tips for removing soot or even better, preventing it? I'm running the stove on methylated spirits, which in Australia is ethanol that has a small amount of
methanol Denatonium Benzoate, Methyl Isobutyl Ketone and Fluorescein added.
