I don’t think a light going over with the ROS is going to take away much material… but if you’re concerned about it, try this instead….

Laydown a pasty layer of Ajax and water, and then put your ROS on top of a greenie (non-matalic scrubbing pad) and go to town.

another option would be to put the ROS on top of a copper chore boy…. since FE is harder than CU, only the crud should be affected.

I’ve used all three methods at one time or another and while they will clean up the oxidation, they will not remove stains. I’ll have to try the viniger trick and see how that works.
