Subject:
Need to neutralize oxalic acid treatment?

John Aniano in central NJ
Hello All,

Quick question - I've used hot oxalic acid to bleach out some rust stains (from being nailed and getting wet) in some light maple moldings. Worked great to remove the rust markings. Before I apply a finish, should I neutralize the acid treatment?

Thanks,

John
