    Please may you provide some help?
    At 4:00 I see two jars, one with lighter blue liquid labeled "ЛАΤЧНЬ" and the other with a darker blue liquid labeled "МЕДh" (not sure to have interpreted them correctly). What do they means?
    What is the role of the ethanol (C2H5OH)?
    Why washing the parts in sodium hydroxide after coating them with copper(II) sulphate?
    Thanks for the video.

    battery electrolyte - 250 ml.
    distilled water - 150 ml.
    The composition for washing:

    Thank you very much for your reply and for the composition you provided. But still I don't get the scope of the alcohol in the mixture.
    Cheers.
