Cleaning and refurbishing metal drag washers

Post by fishhead »

What is the best way to refurbish metal drag washers that are discolored and tarnished with minor corrosion?

Thanks Paul

I would first soak in hot soapy water and then scrub with an old tooth brush. If further cleaning is needed soak in white vinegar checking every 10 minutes or so to evaluate the cleaning progress, scrub with the tooth brush and rinse in water. Repeat until desired results are achieved.
Hand polishing with Simichrome or flitz if needed.
