Default electrolysis questions

Hi,

I have a couple of questions about electrolysis. I probably know just about enough to try this, but not quite enough to make sure I don't do something stupid. First, I've seen people use small electronics adapters as their power source. Would an adapter like the one I've pictured below change AC to DC? Second, I've been looking at alligator clips on Amazon. Some of them say nickel plated steel. Is that the same thing as stainless steel? If not, would it produce the same result? I don't want to make any kind of toxic water in my garage (visions of Erin Brockovitch are playing in my head). Third, I've seen people write about using salt, baking soda, or Uglybox talks about its "brine" What should I put in the water and what's the ratio?


Thanks for any help you can offer!
