No I have an 18 gallon tub I use rebar in the 4 corners and acorns with bare #6 copper for my ground ring. I looked around for specific washing powder and never really found anything but Borax has the ingredients and it works well. I have a few posts on the Gee with my derusting set up. I restore a lot of cast iron cookware. Will have to keep your tub idea in mind in case I get into bigger items though.

I added this '41 dated NESCO water can to my growing collection today. Still has the original 2 lug cap.
