Safety pickle is an essential product for every jewellery workshop for removing the fire-stain caused by heat during soldering. When sterling silver is heated impurities can rise to the surface (especially on larger or flatter pieces) and cause a subtle dark shadow. Sometimes this is obvious straight away but sometimes the staining frustratingly surfaces during polishing.
This special dry acid concentrate is safe to store and easy to use. It works quickest when it is warm so simply mix 1 teaspoonful with warm water in a covered glass or plastic container, immerse your pieces in the solution after soldering and leave them there for a few hours or overnight (full instructions are included).
Always use plastic tweezers for inserting and removing items from a pickle bath - don't be tempted to use metal tweezers for this job (unless you have pure brass ones) as inserting steel in the pickle solution can create a chemical reaction which causes your silver or gold to be copper plated!
