Did the Chrome flake off, or did it dissolve? Yahsee, this is the sort of simple solution (without removing too much brass, and not involving buying a buncha expensive toys, or [shudder] a lot of manual labor!) that I was hoping for! I'm gonna try that. I'm getting my citric acid powder from a soap-making supplies store, at about two bucks a pound, or five pounds for something like six and a half bucks. So far, a pound is lasting me more than a year, so two bucks is fantastic. I'm boiling PF's tomorrow!
