To remove rust from tools without using caustic chemicals, mix 1 part molasses with 9 parts water in a container, then soak the rusty items in it for between several days and two weeks. The solution breaks down the rust and holds it in suspension. Once the rust has been removed, take the items out, clean them off, and go over them with a wire brush.
