In this video, I clean some potassium metal that I left out neglected for a while. It was covered in oxides. We first needed to neutralize the oxides, and then the potassium was melted down.
I am in no way advocating that this is the best way to clean old potassium. Also, there are always fire risks involved.
I also just made 300g+ more mercury thiocyanate to make a new Pharaoh's Snake video.
