    Hi Marks


    Don't, otherwise you will remove the patina that has took years to form. You won't be satisfied with the end result, believe me I know...

    The spots are due to impurities in the aloy, the process can be accelerated by temperature changes and humidity,there is no remedie!

    I have 60+ Infanterie Sturmabzeichen's & haven't & won't clean any. They're best left. If they get zinc pest (white spots of a powdery substance) treat with a smear of vaseline. It doesn't stop,but arrests the corrosion. Stewy S
