He has a point, I was thinking that you could buy some anti-corrosive, mix it with water, and run it through the rad. Would keep it from corroding and get any stuff out that is in there.

Sorry for some strange posts, that is what happens when I first wake up or stay up to late.

Well if your worried about rust, copper doesn't rust, and brass is an alloy of zinc + copper.. so you won't have to worry about rust. That being said it will get that nasty green crap on it over time so it would pay too dry it after your done, but you don't have to worry about it rusting.

the previous owner was probably the leader of a mafia hence the cigar smell

When you say wash do you mean external or internal?

I washed (external) and left my rads in some distilled water and some scented liquid handwash soap for several hours and that got rid of 95% bleach smell. (If you dunk them in the water remember to flush it out with some distilled after.)

I was going to wash it externally. If blowing a fan over it for a day or so doesn't get rid of the smell, I will wash it. Thanks everyone. +rep.

Hmm, imo you can wash it with hot water and dry it off immediately with a blow-dryer. Shouldn't that prevent any kind of corrosion?

Or just smear poop all over it and you'll never get a hint of cigar ever again.
