I know that it is cheap, but is there a reason to use all
that baking soda?
G’day Bruce; Yes. When you take the work from the pickle jar it
has acid adhering. (especially if like me you use 10% sulphuric).
I dip it into the soda pot to neutralise. One could use a pot of
water, or run the work under the tap, I suppose, but I prefer the
jar of - in my case washing soda, sodium carbonate - because I
bought a large packet a a good while ago and might as well use it
up! It’s even cheaper than bicarb, Cheers,
