How to Remove Rust From Tools Naturally
By: Joe Truini
To remove rust from tools, combine salt and lemon juice in a container, then rub the solution on using steel wool or a scourging pad. The salt acts as an abrasive while the acid in the lemon juice cuts through the corrosion. For heavily rusted tools, allow the solution to remain on the surface for a few minutes first. Once the corrosion has been removed, wipe the tool clean with a dry rag.
