Electrolysis - A Method to Remove Rust

One of our good members wrote in our 2005 Spring Newsletter, "My wife & I love to go to yard sales and look for treasures.  Having an acute case of Castironitis, it wounds my heart to see a Dutch oven that has been neglected and rusted.  Sometimes it is accidental, other times it is simply a case of Dutch oven abuse.  Sad.  In any case, I have tried to sand, wire brush, use cola soda pop, and chemicals, but it did not produce the desired results."

Below are some of the pictures that they have taken.  The before and after pictures are amazing.  To find out more about this process, sign up as a member of the Internationa Dutch Oven Society by Clicking Here and ask for this article.
