Let the experimentation begin!
First after spraying with vinegar some rusty stuff was wrapped in white cotton.
I didn't like the stark white so decided to make a tea bath and let it steep in that for awhile.
It didn't take the tea like I had hoped so threw on some more rusty stuff and let it sit in the rain.
It was then laid out to dry.
Since the forecast called for rain (again) I left it for another rinse and what the hell, lets throw the leftover dark rusty water left in the container from the last rain in the middle.
