Copper and Brass
Article © MAIL User: battlecow
First find a container of suitable size (I use a large plastic bucket). If you are using aluminum foil, you should weigh it down at the bottom of your container somehow. Add enough vinegar to completly submerse your chainmail. I am not sure how much salt you should add, but I suggest you add it until it stops dissolving. Place your copper in, and presto! It's done. You don't need to leave it in for more that a few seconds. Take it out, rinse in water, dry, and you're finished. If you take the aluminum out of the liquid before it turns black, you can reuse the liquid again.
