i got bored when it was raining for a week , some weeks age so i made a mix of mallassis & water to clean these cast iron dog figurines up with ( book holders )

P8200122.JPG

the 1st one is as it was untouched & the 2nd 1 is after soaking it for 2 days in the solution then rubbed with a wire brush & water to clean it , 

has not been painted or coated yet 6 weeks later & still looks as if just done

since the molasses i used was very concentrated from liquid evaporation 3 gals to 4 cups of molasses , pretty much depends on how quick you want it to clean ,

(you can use electrolysis to aid cleaning & makes it way quicker  too   

for that go utube )

 mine was not eaten in rust  ( rust bubbles } just really dirty really 

BUT if you use pretty much straight molasses be careful not to over leave it in the solution or it can start to eat the item you put in there

when retrieving treasure from the sea (ocean ) they use electrolysis with molasses & water mix to stabilize the metals & takes a long time to stabilize the metals too or they will just deteriorate to crumbling mass of nothing much  because the sea salt & such kills the metals

The cleanned one reminded me of a black newfie I had 20 years ago. I still miss her. She was a once in a lifetime dog who was multi talented. Good Luck, Rick
