Stopping Rust in Its Tracks With Everyday Materials

Many rust stains are extremely easy to remove from almost any surface that it sticks to. You may only think rust can stain different types of metals, but this is incorrect. Rust stains can rub or drip on to almost any surface. Thankfully common items in the house such as vinegar, baking soda, and lemon juice are great tools for removing rust. For instance, to remove rust off of old tools you could use baking soda with either lemon juice or vinegar. Mix the two to create a fairly thick paste to apply to your item. Let the paste stand on the rust spot for approximately 15 minutes. This will eat away at most surface layer rust that hasn’t been given a chance to mature yet. You can rub the solution with steel wool in order to shine and remove any other dirt or rust that is still there after soaking. Coat the metal with WD40 to further seal the metal and stop it from rusting in the future.
