    High Quality (and Safe) Nickel Plating

    I really love this instructable. But, I think there's a typo in step 4: "You can further clean your object by reverse electroplating (ie "electrocleaning") it for a few seconds. Hook your object up to a negative voltage, a wire to the positive voltage, and drop them both in a vinegar salt solution for 10-30 seconds."Shouldn't the object to be cleaned be connected to positive voltage? The object you want to clean become the anode and the wire becomes the cathode.
