Default DIY reverse electrolysis...kill rust

DO THIS IN A VENTED AREA, DO NOT PUT A LID ON THIS. CREATES HYDROGEN

you need a pale or bucket of water.
arm n hammer washing soda or baking soda
car charger. (no float charger)
any kind of conductive piece of metal.

1 gallon of water to 1table spoon of washing soda.
stir it
put the rusted part in the water.
hook up the negative to the rusted junk.

hoop up the red clamp to an F22 balance shaft or screwdriver etc
and put that in the water...do not put the power red clamp itself in the water.

dont let the rust junk and metal electrode touch in the water.

usualy wait 2-3hrs depending on how bad the rust is.

small scale. you get the ida

Interesting, let us know how long it took and what you used to get the oxide off.

If you can't pronounce something in the ingredient list it means it's probably not good for you.

Or if you can't visualize it.

I heard they use Coke to clean blood off roads. Not sure if it's true or not...

It was one of those things like "you know they use that to clean blood up off roads right?"

But no backing of it. But I would not doubt it.

The "any piece of metal" has to be ferrous, meaning containing iron. This is easy, but I just know someone will try an aluminum cookie sheet or something and report poor results.

Also, the bigger the amperage charger, the better. Like a 6 amp is better than 2. Obviously, use a regular charger. Don't drop a 220v cord for your welder in the water.
