Gold stripping with Muriatic Acid



My father told me that Muriatic Acid can strip gold as he was also adding some other 2 or 3 chemicals and then he adds only 5 drops of acid then it was stripping. it used to get uniform color of gold this is for any gold jewellery. Still in India goldsmiths are using this old method b'coz it is cheap & gives good color but it is harmful to use in an enclosed area it should be used in open area. Fumes are very bad for health.
