DIY Simple Rust Remover

Yes, the distressed look is in, but some items should remain rust-free. Use vinegar as an easy rust remover for old hinges, screws and metal garden furniture exposed to humidity.

You’ll need:

Here’s how:

For small objects:  Fill the jar half-full with vinegar, drop in small rusty parts, screw the lid on and soak for a few days until rust loosens. Remove the objects, rinse with water and dry carefully.

For larger furniture: Soak paper towels in vinegar and lay it over furniture surfaces to loosen rust. If the rust is stubborn, cover the saturated towel with plastic wrap to keep the towel damp. Keep the piece out of direct sunlight for a few days. Remove the wrapping, steel-wool the spot smooth, rinse and dry. Paint once dry if desired.
