How To Clean Metals Before Selling Part- 2

In the last blog post, we saw how to clean the most common metals given for scrap - copper, brass and aluminium. In this blog post, we’ll go a step ahead and talk about cleaning some more materials frequently found in the Dubai scrap yards.
  1. Lead - Lead is not as simple to clean as other metals. You will need a scrubber and a special lead cleaner to have your lead in good quality  before heading out to a scrap metal dealer.
     
  2. Zinc - Zinc has a very distinctive coating that may become dull over time. To clean this, your toothbrush and toothpaste will come in handy. Take some paste on a soft brush or a clean cloth and lightly rub the zinc object with it. A toothbrush will help you reach all the corners while a cloth will give you a large coverage area. Once you’re done, wipe down the area with a damp cloth to remove any residue of cleaning agents.
     
  3. Magnesium - Magnesium is famous for adding a touch of swag to your wheels, and chances are, it has collected a lot of dirt over time. If possible, wash the magnesium object with a lot of water, and then clean with a cloth dipped in water mixed with dish washing soap. When the dirt and grease are all gone, wash again with water to bring the shine back!
That brings us to the end of tips to clean your metals before entering the Dubai scrap trading market. We hope these tips will help you make a killing in scrap metal dealing!
