Days in citrus

This lantern spent three days in a mixture of 2.5 gallons of warm water and 2 cups of citric acid crystals. Each day, a soapy brillo pad would be used to lightly scrub the rust loose from the lantern. By doing this, the Metal Rescue in the next step will last longer. It is rather expensive, so it is good to get as much rust off the lantern as possible before using it.
