I'm at a loss. The last time I looked at my bass, the frets (like the metal protrusions on the neck) looked green. I thought it could possibly have been because I kept my bass in the trunk of my car in the winter. I'm confused tho, it looked like a copper-rust-green type color, what can i do?

^namely, a couple good swipes with it.

just rub off the nasty.

I was expecting something about somebody make special green frets, totally disappointed. that'd be beastly.

I wouldn't call what we have here on the Bass Forum a mentality. It's more like the sharing part of an AA meeting.

1. Take off the strings of your bass.
2. Cover up the neck between each fret with tape.
3. Get some steel wool and gently rub the fret wire until the green is gone.
4. Rub the fret wire with a soft cloth
5. Put the strings back on.

Sorted. Alternatively, you can cover one fret wire with the tape on each side, wipe it, then move the tape to the next one.

Nickel (II) Oxide has a nice green color to it, similar to Copper Oxide. To prevent this, make sure you wipe down the frets and strings with either a cotton cloth or a microfiber cloth in order to remove any excess sweat and water from the surfaces. This will help to mitigate the corrosion.

Clean your bass a lot more. This is just like skin build up I think, and it's fixed just as easily.
