Galvanized wire more luster

Galvanized steel wire is regular steel wire dipped in a zinc-based solution designed to protect the steel from rust.

Although the zinc coating will not rust, over time it will oxidize, making it look tarnished or dirty. Put on the dishwashing gloves. Apply a liberal amount of hydrogen peroxide to the cloth, and polish the wire by holding the cloth in one hand, while pulling the wire through it with the other. Polishing the wire in this manner will remove surface corrosion unless the wire has built up excessive amounts of corrosion.

When steel is dipped in zinc, it does not just coat the steel, but becomes part of the steel. Clean dirt or contamination from the wire using soapy water and a cloth.

You can restore the shine to dull galvanized steel wire with materials commonly found in the home.

In this article I will tell the method of makinggalvanized wire shiny. Substitute steel wool in place of the cloth, taking care not to scrub too hard and remove the zinc coating. Hold the steel wool around the wire with one hand, and pull the wire with the other hand. After cleaning you may use the galvanized steel wire for whatever purpose you wanted it cleaned for.
