    Default Petroleum Jelly Bath Question!

    Hey all,
    After taking the advice of some of my fellow collectors, i've decieded to give my metals a petroleum bath. This included soaking them in petroleum for 24 hrs. I applied a lot btw. Everyone talks about to do/ or doing this, but not the final step. So my question, and for futher research is; what do you do after 24 hrs? Scrub off? Wipe off? Waste off? Thanks to whom knows!

    Petroleum?? I've never heard of this. Petroleum jelly (Vasoline) maybe but even then only as a means to slow down the spread of zinc pest.

    Petroleum?

    You should smear vaseline on any badges with the white zinc pest and wipe off after 24 hours. Don't for goodness sake try anything else or on anything else!!!!!

    Now looking at my medals, I'm worried I did the wrong onces. How can you tell if it's zinc(late-war? no?) and if you do steel, what's wrong with that; for futher reference? thanks all
