Lemon juice. Apply a couple of times, let it dry after the first time and then repeat it once more.
You can buy expensive bottles if you like but you'll see on the ingredients of some that they include just that, lemon extract (or something).

I use paraffine oil, don't know if that is an accepted fact whether it's good but it works for me. The Lemon juice deal is known and accepted.
