DIY_Guy would you mind explaining how the naval jelly works or maybe what the stuff is?
Naval Jelly is phosphoric acid (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phosphoric_acid)

It removes rust and since bluing is rust it will remove bluing as well

yep, if you take something that is rusty (red/orange) and boil it, it will turn black (bluing). This is the earliest form of bluing
