I bought a slice of Dronino from Ivan a while back and it arrived already
starting to rust. This was before he applied whatever process to stop
rusting. Anyway I took my slice and soaked it for at least two weeks in
Steve Schoner's mix of sodium hydroxide (Red Devil brand lye) and
standard 70% isopropyl rubbing alcohol. Then I baked it an hour in the
oven and repolished it. It's been fine ever since - about 7 months so far.
