Also, how do I clean the green off my fishing reel?
i would probably take the reel apart and take just the parts with verdigris (which is the green corrosion you see), and soak them in a solution of straight simple green or a mix of about 3:2 of simple green. Then after letting it soak over night if it doesnt sluff right off a toothbrush would probably get the rest.
One may also ask, how do you remove green corrosion from metal? Vinegar is for battery green goop. Actually, the green goop (copper oxide which is relesed from the brass) will dissolve a bit with white vinegar (tried it) then follow up with Flitz which will knock it out entirely. Flitz will also leave a protective sheen that helps prevent further oxidation on the areas treated.

Rod and Reel Cleaning and Maintenance
- Tighten the drag on the reel to prevent water contamination of the drag stack and lightly sponge with warm, soapy water.
- Rinse the reel off gently with fresh water and wipe dry with a clean cloth.
- It is a good idea to wipe the line clean as well.
Can fishing reels get wet?
Fishing rods will not get harmed by dropping into a river. However, fishing reels are a different story. When you accidentally drop it off on the water or when it gets wet, then you should rinse it with clean water. Remove the side plate for a baitcasting roll to reveal the inner workings.
