A very mild solution of sulphuric acid can be used along with the salt dissolved in it, but won't be necessary if the piece is already clean. .
It is the acid that might not be necessary.is it the acid or the salt that isn't neccessary?
and wouldn't the acid dissolve the object i'm trying to plate? (its made out of stainless steel)
Indeed. but it is not only ferric cloride that attacks stainless steel. Other cloride based chemicals can do so, such as cloridric acid or sodium hypocloride (used in bleach)....Unless the acid is very concentrated, the SS won't be attacked. Unless you're using FeCl.
