    Default relic helmet rust removal

    Hello everyone
    I have a relic ww2 german helmet that is caked in rust. I want to remove as much rust as possible because I see original green paint undernethe the rust. I think I want to soak the helmet in soap water for a while then rub it off with a rag. The problem is a bit of the liner is still intact and super hard and stiff. If I soaked the helmet completely in soap water, would the liner be affected by the soap water? I want to protect it as much as possible. Also could a wire brush be used after the soak? Thank you for the help!
