Pickles ain't pickles


#1

Hi ran out of safety pickle and tried salt and vinegar. Hot. worked
ok on sterling.

But on reticulated sterling does not touch the firestain.

So ordered some more Safety Pickle from HOJ

I like refrigerator pickles with a lot of garlic, they are fast and
delicious but for metal I still use sparex. And the way it lasts you
should never really be caught offguard. Order it now, you’ll probably
have it tomorrow.

You should try pHDown (or similar) at your local pool store or Homo
Depot.

Hello Orchidland,

For those who like “Sparex”, the same chemical is available at your
local hardware store that stocks pool chemicals. Various names like
"pH Down" or “Lo 'N Slo”, so look for the active ingredient Sodium
bisulfate. Always in stock too.

no tornado.

I recently switched from using Sparex to an non-toxic pickle of
vinegar and salt. It really works but does make my workshop smell
like a salad :slight_smile:

I have had good luck using citric acid for pickle. No harsh
chemicals to ruin my clothes and lungs.
