Sandblasting usually, we've just done this to Heptonstall bells. It gives a
matt finish rather than the slightly shiny one that bead blasting gives.
Don't do shot blasting though. You get lots of little bits of shot embedded
in the bell surface and the first time it rains, the bells rust!


Steam cleaning is an interesting idea though, should be better than jet
