I've had a go at electrolysis for the first time and found the result not too bad.

Hi Tony,

Interesting results and a process that is well worth keeping in mind for other members to attempt in the future.

Thanks for posting the outcome of your experiment.

Regards

Brian

Thanks Brian!

Here's my bike saddle, cleaned up yesterday and looking far better than before (wish I had taken before photos). I've used baking powder and washing powder, the latter gave quicker results but wasn't any better.

I've used plain white vinegar on many a rusty classic car part with great success. Just drop it in a bowl and watch the bubbles . Leave it in till you're happy.

Hi there I was taught an old trick many years ago- it was used by Georgian Butlers to clean the family silver & works on the same principle. You need some aluminium cooking foil, washing crystals & boiling water. Great for silver, brass, copper as well as steel & iron no matter how cruddy. It gets into all the nooks & crannies too. I then wash it in warm soapy water, if still cruddy I might rub with 0000 wire wool & repeat. Then a polish with Brasso(this removes any fine scratches caused by the wool) with a duster & then a final polish with Brasso on a j-cloth that has been moistened. A final rinse with washing up liquid & then polish with kitchen towel
