Now that really is interesting - presumably the vinegar converts the iron oxide to a less tenacious compound (iron acetate??? scratch never heard of it!). I gather Jenolite etc. do a similar sort of thing with phosphoric acid or whatever. Do we have any chemists on the forum to provide an informed comment?

The big question of course is - if this method's as good as it sounds, why haven't we heard about it before? scratchchin Let us know how you get on James.

Balderdash and Piffle! Rolling Eyes

I've had three rusty bolts in a cap of vinegar all night and nothing happened.

Like Bob said, if it's so good why doesn't everyone now about it?

I think a little photoshop's been going on, don't you? Laughing
