    Default vinegar

    if they are REALLY bad soak them in a 5 gallon pale of white vinegar for 5 days, then take out and spray with hose they should be good as new.

    I usually go right from vinegar and hosing them down to clean them, and then let they lay in the yard to get a nice coat of surface rust. THen I dye and wax them. I am not sure what guys are doing with wolf traps though.

    The only thing I boil in baking soda are my snares.
