Your best bet is to go the library and get a decent text on metal 
finishing and electroplating, it will cover what you want to know 
from the cleaning point of view, probably in far more detail than you 
really want to know.

On the other hand, if you are referring to the performance process of 
using acids to actual remove significant metal and lighten 
components, that is very much a speciality sort of thing. Not sure 
where to go for that kind of info.
