#2 Potato

Scrub a halved potato to the rusted area with a bit of salt, baking powder, or dishwashing liquid.

#3 Baking Soda

Add the baking soda to a container with the rusted object, then add water until thick paste forms. Leave it for two hours.

#4 Citric Acid

Soak the object in clean water, then sprinkle citric acid on top and gently stir it. Small bubbles should form after a few minutes. If you don’t see them, add more citric acid. Let them soak for three to four hours.


#5 Tamarind Water

Put the tamarind peas in a pot filled with water together with the object and bring it to a boil. Once the water is cool enough, dip a piece of cloth into the water and use it to scrub the rusted areas.

#6 Lemon

For a natural approach, use lemon. Simply rub some coarse salt on the rusted areas of the object, then pour some lemon juice. Soak it for no more than two hours.

#7 White Vinegar

Soak the object in white vinegar for at least ten minutes. Depending on the rust buildup, this could take a few minutes or up to a day.

#8 Scrub Away

Soak the object with rust on clean water and scrub the rust away with sandpaper. If you don’t have sandpaper, you can also use steel wool or a wire brush.
