Hi Fred, the several deoxidizers that I've checked out all note that a
thorough rinsing with acetone (or stronger chemicals which I won't mention
because they are dangerous and unnecessary), then a flow of hot water.  I've
done the final water rinse easily "in the field" using hot water in a thermos.
One easy source of deoxidizer in small, economy, sizes is to take your glass
jar to the local furniture refinisher.  He/she often uses it on copper
hardware.   73,  Steve, K1PEK  DAVIS RF Co.
