I was wondering how do you do it by electrolysis.

Does the salt affect the iron oxide? And will copper wire leech copper into the mix? Cause we can't all get lab requirement to do this stuff
Why do you want to use electrolysis? Just put an iron nail in some water or acid and there you go. Electrolysis would be useful to inverse the reaction, as electricity would be needed for that.
which would be faster- water or acid?
