I did a test today (on a rusty example I picked up recently) using the products I bought from renaissance.

I left the decoroder on for about 30 mins, then rub with it with a little more and 00 wire wool.
After washing I then used the de-Lim and 00 wire wool.

Finally I used the renaissance wax to finish and polish.

First photos the starting point and after decoroder.

Pictures below.

Cheers,
Scott.

Ok thanks interesting, must be an acid, seen similar effect from standing in raw pineapple juice, slower process with pineapple juice though.. Sulphuric and coca cola are very fast, but probably more dangerous! {Especialy if you eat pizza with them as well! :lol: }

Nice old kukri..

Maybe i’ll Try sticking a rusty one into a whole pineapple one day to clean it 8)

I could have probably have gone cleaner and removed more of the sureface marks with the prelim, I think I stopped at the right point - would you agree or did I go to far ?

Many thanks,
Scott.
