Yes use the Japan legs stamped on the feet, and for a faster reaction, I boiled mine, and you can watch the change take place,have some tongs, so you can periodically test the color, it doesn't take that long to do, probably less than 30 min and that's probably too long, but I have had no problem with cracking.I used straight bleach, and a little water, to dilute the bleach so when it boils you won't get the bleach fumes, turn on your overhead fan to suck up the fumes, and good luck.
