Lemon Juice, Vinegar, Olive Oil, Bi-Carb, Electrolysis and even the Good 'ole CLR clean your coins and other finds that's for sure, but in reality you may be destroying your hard won finds.
STOP THE CARNAGE!!!!!
If Olive oil is bad then how bad is Vinegar! Or what about lemon Juice? It's basically acid in fruit form!
So you can continue to use the chemicals and acids to CLEAN your finds or you can get a bit PRO and start RESTORING them instead.
Ever Heard the word "Patina"? In most cases the Patina is of more value than the actual find! Its what makes an old item......... well, Old.
CLEANING a find De-Values it.
RESTORING a find adds Value.
So on that note I would like to introduce to Australia the "Andre's Pencil" for restoring your metal detecting finds back to what they should look like.
If you can colour in, you can RESTORE your finds and preserve the precious patina that can only be developed by time.
REMOVE THE DIRT NOT THE VALUE!
Watch the video's below. The First will introduce to the 4 Pencil restoration Kit and the second will demonstrate the use of the pencils on a coin in typical detected condition.
After the video's make a simple decision, CLEAN versus RESTORE and then add the pencils to your cart or head off to bunnings for some brickies acid.
Enjoy Cleaning or Restoring your finds, really it's whatever makes YOU happy, so go with that.
