Contamination

Routine cleaning (see below) repeated for a few days, will address superficial staining.
  • For rust spots created by a fragment or ordinary steel becoming embedded in the surface (identified by a “halo” around the affected area) pat with a 10% solution of nitric acid on a soft cloth or earbud, repeat until removed.

  • Hard rubbing will be required for severe stains, use a fine household abrasive (nylon scouring pad) and 10% nitric acid. Acid treatments must be followed by rinsing in ammonia or soda bicarb solution.

  • Be careful when using Acid or Amonia, avoid contact, if accidental contact does occur then rinse immediately and soak in ammonia or soda bicarb solution, followed by normal cleaning.
