Next time use steel wool with mineral spirits.

I don’t know of any other effective way to polish high carbon steel than to step down through several grades of steel wool (with mineral spirits as a lubricant) and then finish up with a polishing wheel with compound. I would assume your etch would be ok as long as you don’t polish that area too aggressively with the steel wool.
