The most efficient way to recover rusty items in 5 minutes

It may happen that you have metal objects, perhaps old and to which we are especially attached, that due to humidity or poor maintenance have become  rusted,  acquiring an old and damaged appearance. There are many  solutions to remove rust from metal  , but below we offer you some that you can apply at home.

Most products for  removing rust from objects  contain chemical and abrasive compounds, which are toxic to health. Furthermore, almost all of them involve immersing objects in a solution, with the risk of damaging especially delicate objects.

The solutions that we propose below, on the contrary, are not at all toxic or harmful to health, and can be applied at home in complete safety, obtaining more than satisfactory results.

Remove rust with aluminum foil.

This is perhaps one of the most effective and least known tricks to remove rust from metal objects. Cut small pieces of aluminum foil about 10 centimeters long, moisten them and rub them on the rust.

You will notice that the rust comes off quickly, as if the aluminum foil were an eraser. Once the rust is removed, wipe with a cotton cloth.

One of the advantages of this method is that aluminum foil is extremely malleable and can easily reach even difficult corners.

Sodium bicarbonate

One of the most popular remedies, it works best on thin layers of rust. Applying it is very simple and really only takes a few minutes.

Moisten baking soda with water and apply it to items damaged by rust.

Scrub with a toothbrush or sponge, then wipe with a cotton cloth.

Lemon and salt against rust

Lemon juice has a mild abrasive property and when combined with salt can be very effective in removing rust from metal objects.

Sprinkle some salt on the rusty object, then pour in the lemon juice and use the same zest to scrub well until all the rust is completely removed.

Finally, clean with a microfiber or cotton cloth.
