Spring Cleaning 101 – The Natural Way To Remove Rust

April 9, 2007

Whether it be on your shower door rails or in your kitchen, I think we can agree that rust is just plain ugly. Most of the time, at least in my past, when I wanted to remove rust from something, we ran out to the store and bought some of that pink jelly goopy stuff..and sure enough, the rust disappeared. However, most of those rust removers are highly toxic and not something that you want in your house. Want to get rid of the rust but live to tell about it?

Here is what you need – Salt and lime juice. Yep, that’s it. Already have them in your house? Great, your rust remover is now free. Just sprinkle some salt on the rusty spot and put some of the juice right on top of the salt…but not so much that the salt floats away. You want the mixture to sit right on the rust. Leave it to sit for a few hours and come back with a scrubber and go to work. It won’t take much effort to remove the rust, I promise. And you can be happy about the fact that you kept one more toxic substance out of your house!
