    Now what did you use to clean it? I seem to remember seeing on another thread a 'Oxalic Acid'? If so how is it used? And, you did a nice clean up!

    Please do not promote the oxalic acid methode whitout telling to be very caution using it.
    You see thise on every forum!!
    I even read about a guy telling he had done it bare hands, in the kitchen sink!!
    Oxalic acid is an natural acid, you can find in many vegetables, but using it concentrated like thise it is a deadly poison!
    Deadly poison if swallowed, harmfull by breathing,and you can get serious liver deseases when in contact with your skin.And the probleme is that it does'nt feel like burning when in contact with the skin.
    When using thise, do it out side(out of the wind!!), do not spoil any, use protective measures.
    They are finally going to ban it, along with other acid's, here in Belgium. Only to get by a liscenced users.
