Sparex is a granular acid compound that removes firescale from metal after soldering.

  • To use Sparex add 1/8 cup (2 Tablespoons) to 1 cup water in a small crock pot. Plug crock pot in on a low temperature. Sparex works when heated. Protect the area using an old cookie sheet or piece of metal.
  • Use only copper tongs when touching the pickle. Do not put steel tweezers into the pickle, this will cause the pickle to become a copper plating bath. Everything inside your pickle will come out covered with a thin layer of copper.
  • Place the piece of metal with firescale into the crock pot and let sit for about 5 minutes or until the piece is clean.
  • Rinse well in a bowl of water with baking soda.
  • Do not reuse the crock pot or any of the utensils used for pickling for food use. The crock pot is now your designated pickle pot.
