Step 1: All the Required Tools for the Whole Process

here are photos of all the stuff that you need to clean your old iron articles.

Step 2: Mixing the Ingredients....

Take about a litre of water and mix the whole of the citric acid powder in it......the ratio of water to acid powder depends on how fast u want to clean the item.... u can add a sufficient amount of acid with a little amount of water but make sure that the water remains liquid and does not turn into a paste kind of or it becomes difficult to work with....

Step 3: Add Ur Metal Items in the Mixture

place all ur parts in the acidic solution and try to keep them submerged coz u dont want them to be rusted at just one spot....

Step 4: SCRUB SCRUB SCRUB

Now take ur brass brush and hold the in ur hand or how ever ur are comfortable with and scrub them till u get ur desired shine...... this happens fast because of the chemical reaction and the rust come off easily.....

Step 5: Some Before and After

here are a few photos showing the before and after of the item....

Step 6: After Scrubbing

after scrubbing them well immediately put them in water and wash them well followed by wiping dry with a clean cloth..... after they are dry oil them with the oil u have...

SORRY NO PICS OF THE WASHING AND DRYING PROCESS.... DEAD BATTERY....

Step 7: Assembling the Set

after oiling the well all u have to do is just assemble them back and they as good as new....

Step 8: The Finished Thing

after u have assembled everything u are good to go....
