There is really no "Proper" way to remove lead, but there are a lot of different ways. Some take time and effort, some use chemicals and some only take a few seconds and a few pennies.
I use what I feel is the fastest, easiest and cheapest way to remove lead. Go to your local Grocery store or Walmart and pickup a box of Chore-Boy all copper scrubbing pads. Make sure they are all copper! cut a small piece off a Chore-Boy pad and wrap it around a worn out copper brush or a nylon bristle brush. Run the brush back and forth a few times and Presto, no more lead.
It really is that fast and that simple!.
