Cleaning Crankshafts

Ok, maybe this should be in the ped repair im not sure. I just got a crankshaft out and its pretty rusty. If i just sit the sucker in a vat of muriatic acid for a half hour to an hour, is that unsafe for the crank? After i got it out id clean it thoroughly, and re-grease it.

Foolish, or acceptable?

Muriatic or coco's stuff but the bearings may be pitted a bit. None the less you may get some miles out of it
