I used the scrubbing just described and then soaked them overnight in water with denture cleaner. Mine were found in river bottoms. Some of the stains are deep and will not come outView attachment 230806
Toilet bowl cleaner is another good one. More than one way to get it done.

With crystals we use powdered “iron out” when all else fails. Kind of nasty stuff but not like muriatic acid or hydrochloric acid, but if it gets on you, you don’t feel it until your already burned…. But it really takes the iron out of all kinds of stuff. The spray doesn’t work as well. And really, you don’t have to scrub even.

I have one here i did not clean. It is a Balt'o Md. Resinol chemical co. Before and after pictures. Cleaned up with a miracle sponge. The heavy stuff i took off with rust dissolver(see pic) and a brass detail brush.

Is that a fancy package full of “navel jelly”? (Like rust-oleums “NEW DISCOVERY”! )
