There are so many things in our homes and gardens that get rusty and instead of having to replace everything we can simply clean them up naturally with just some things that we have around the house.
It’s so easy to grab a few essential items that you have in your cupboard and make your household and garden products as good as new so that you don’t have to keep replacing them.
Coca-Cola has long been used to get rid of rust and lots of other different types of build ups due to its high acidic content and oxidating nature. Yes, you can use other types of cola (cheaper varieties) but Coca-Cola is the one that’s been the most tested and so it’s probably best to just get the one that’s tried and tested. The citric acid in Coca-Cola has abrasive citric acid and is powerful, so all you have to do is pour the Coca-Cola on the rust. You can also soak a cloth in Cola and rub it vigorously on the rust in order to remove it. For small items, you can leave them to soak in the Coca-Cola to get rid of all of those rust marks.
While the acid in Coca-Cola is perfect for getting rid of rust, it maybe strange to think that an alkaline substance is just as good at doing the exact same thing. Mix the baking soda with a small amount of water so that it is relatively thick and then paste it on to the rusty area and leave it for a few hours. You can take a scrubbing brush and then remove the past, with the loosened rust coming away as well.
Lime Juice with Salt
Take your rusty object and sprinkle it with salt. If it’s a large item, take the salt and rub it into the rust (with a scrubbing cloth so that you protect your hands). Then follow this with plentiful quantity of lime juice. You need to have enough salt so that it all doesn’t dissolve in the lime juice. After a few hours, return with your scrubbing cloth or brush and brush away the solution (along with the rust).
If you don’t have any of the above in your home, you may want to try white vinegar. Vinegar is good for so many things and it’s good for rust too! Take your rusty object and put it in a bowl with vinegar that’s been partially diluted with water. This is perfect for small items that you can bundle in at the same time. Within minutes, you’ll start to see the rust flake away but the amount of time that you need to leave it there will depend on how rusty it is and how long it’s been rusted for.
Lemon Juice and Cream of Tartar (For Removing Rust From Stainless Steel)
As if the above examples were not enough, a great way to remove rust from stainless steel is by mixing lemon juice and cream of tartar onto a washcloth. Just like with the Coca-Cola, the lemon contains citric acid and so when it’s added to the cream of tartar it becomes an abrasive device. This method is great because when you use scouring pads to clean stainless steel it can often cause scratches and so this is a much better way of doing things.
