My drum was marked "Lemon Juice Concentrate", not sure what was in your drums.
Anyhow the acid can be bought at Home Depot in the paint department. Or anyplace pool supplies are sold.
Safety Goggles and Gloves also.
The fumes are nasty make sure you wear a mask rated for them. I wasn't sure it would remove the zinc so I did a little test pour on the lid before I got my respirator out. Big mistake.
Also get a big bag of baking soda from Costco to neutralize the acid when the inside of the drum is stripped.
Here is the MSDS sheet for IPC Odorant:
Decide for yourself if you want to cook food in it.
