For many, having rusty toilets, showers and clothes is a way of life, but when you know how to make a homemade rust remover, you might find that it doesn't have to be.
Simple ingredients - big cleaning power
One of the best homemade rust removers out there is the simple cleaning power of white vinegar. All you need to do is spray or dab at the rust spot and let it soak for about a half hour. If you're trying to clean something small, you can just dip it in and let it soak for about 30 minutes. Then rinse it and let it dry. If you still have rust, repeat the process until it's gone.
Another really great recipe for a home made rust remover is the combination of borax and lemon juice. Mix them together in equal parts and apply the solution by spraying, dabbing or submerging into the mixture. Allow the mixture to soak in for about 30 minutes. You can scrub it a little, or just rinse it off. Let the item dry and repeat the process if any rust remains.
Here is a good to know tip: Many items will seem to turn black after they have been treated, but they should return to normal after you rinse them. However, to be safe, you should spot check an inconspicuous area to make sure that there won't be permanent staining.
Other ingredients that work well
So, maybe you don't have these ingredients, or maybe you have some of them, but you might also be interested to find out that there are additional ingredients to help you clean the rust from your areas.
Consider using some baking soda to remove rust. When you apply this to a moistened surface and scrub it a little, then let it sit for about a half hour, you might find this is an excellent rust remover.
Or, for another homemade rust remover recipe, consider mixing cream of tartar, hydrogen peroxide and borax. Mix the cream of tartar and borax together with one teaspoon cream of tartar and 1/4 cup of borax. Then add the hydrogen peroxide until it begins to form a paste. Apply the paste to the rusty area and let it sit for 30 minutes. Wipe it away or rinse it off at this time and, if your rust stain isn't gone, repeat the process.
When you're looking for a great inexpensive way to clean your rust stains, but don't want to spend a lot of money or are uncomfortable with some of the harsh, potentially dangerous chemicals that many rust removers might contain, then a homemade rust remover might be just what you're looking for.
Good to know tip: Store the borax in a place that children cannot get to, and make sure to be careful when mixing any of these products together. Also, if you choose to use a spray bottle, you should rinse it thoroughly when you're finished with it and don't add other chemicals to the bottle you use.
So, which homemade rust remover are you going to try first?
