Just about Got the Coso out Now What?

I have been bleeding The Cosmelene out of my Yugo Mauser Stock, and just about have it all.
I have been placing it on a Black Trash Bag in My Car, this Weekend.
It gets Very Hot in There with the windows up. Its a Black Car.
I go out every thirty minutes or so, and wipe the Cosmo off with Some Blue Automotive Paper Towells and Alcohol.
The Stock is starting to get very dry and chalky looking, less Cosmo is leaking out, just a coupld of spots.
Is there any way to protect this wood without sanding it?
I dont want to sand off the historical markings.

I used oven cleaner and the stock was very dry when it was finally decosmolined. Linseed oil cut with a little turpentine worked well for me. Let it dry between application.

Thanks Salvador,

I will try this, I like the color of the wood, It apears to be some kind of Walnut, but Im not sure.
Mine was one of the Dark Stocked ones, with the bent down bolt handle.
