If you’ve never had citric acid start to eat through and pit you’ve been lucky. About the only product I’ve heard to be completely safe is evapo-rust. I’m sure there are other like it, but be careful with citric acid as well. Even with evapo-rust, make sure the piece is completely submerged or you’ll forever know where the water mark was.

I did a small test for different techniques here. Not completely in line with the conversation, but may help,

All this is worse on steel, so I’ll never put a blade in any kind of acid what so ever.
