Hello Andrea,

I’ve been working with a product called Tech-ox “P” for 24 years
with great results. You can use it ice cold, but be forewarned, it
contains hydrochloric acid and tellurium. I have been looking for a
safer in many industries product for as long as I’ve been using it,
but with no success. Liver of sulfur (just as hazardous) has never
given me the results I get from Tech-ox. As long as you’re wearing an
OSHA-approved respirator and a good ventilation system, you’ll be
fine.

Here’s where to purchase it:

Technic, Inc.

Good luck,

There is a product called Silver Black or Black Max that you can
paint on and it will provide a rich black. Make sure you only apply
it where you want it.

People have in the past suggested putting work inside a plastic bag
with hard boiled eggs. Would that be a practical suggestion and
alternative to liver of sulphur or other such chemicals that you
can’t use?
