    Cleaning electrical parts

    A little trick I picked up off the Viva forum.....a weak solution of citric acid does a wonderful job of cleaning dirty copper electrical parts. I used it to clean a 12S socket on our caravan which had gone green and furry. Home brew shops, good supermarkets and chemists sell citric acid in powder or crystal form. I used a teaspoon to 1/4 pint water - which was quite a strong mix.

    You need to thoroughly rinse and dry afterwards, and apply some WD40 to the clean surfaces.
