A funny name, isn't it.
When you solder silver and other metals, they get darkened and crusty. To clean them up, you dunk them in an acidic solution commonly called pickle.
My soldering station is not well set up and I've been putting my pickle in a little glass cup. But it evaporates quickly and I have to make fresh solution frequently.
I decided that the next time I have a good-sized jar that's empty, I'd recycle it and use it to store my pickle.
Guess which jar was next?
