High Performance Coating Systems

It is definitely a nuisance when rust accumulates on your knives, sink, countertops, and other metal appliances. It not only looks extremely unappealing but also brings a lot of damage to steel, copper, and aluminum objects. This oxidation of iron might make you discard your belongings.

However, it is not the end for your shiny pots, pans, and knives. You can bring them back to life. Now, we know you cannot do high-performance coating processes to salvage rusty objects, but there are a few effective home remedies that can help you remove rust.
Remove Rust with Baking Soda and Water
Baking soda effectively cleans light rust spots and stains, especially if the metal is thin.
What You’ll Need:
• ½ cup baking soda
• ½ cup water
• A scouring sponge
Mix equal parts of baking soda and water into a thick mixture and apply it all over the rusted metal. Let it sit for half an hour. Then, using a sponge, scour away the rust. Rinse it thoroughly and dry.
Remove Rust with Vinegar
Vinegar is famous for cleaning almost everything, thanks to the power of acetic acid. So, take it out of your kitchen cabinet and use it to scrub away the rust.
What You’ll Need:
• Synthetic white vinegar or apple cider vinegar
• Dish Soap
• A bowl or container
• A scouring sponge
Fill a bowl with a decent amount of vinegar and submerge your metal object, leaving it overnight. Take it out in the morning and scrape the remaining rust with dishwashing liquid and a sponge.
Or, pour some vinegar onto a sponge and scrub the rust stains on any kitchen appliances.
Remove Rust with Baking Soda and Lemon
Combine the acidic properties of lemon with baking soda to get rid of rust.
What You’ll Need:
• ½ cup lemon juice
• ½ cup baking soda
• A sponge
Mix equal parts of baking soda and lemon juice and apply the mixture on a rusted surface, leaving for fifteen to twenty minutes. Then, scrub it with a soft sponge and rinse with cold water.
Remove Rust with Cream of Tartar and Hydrogen Peroxide
Now you can say goodbye to rust on your kitchen appliances with the ever-effective cleaning agent hydrogen peroxide combined with the non-abrasive cream of tartar.
What You’ll Need:
• 4 tablespoons cream of tartar
• 4 tablespoons of hydrogen peroxide
• A sponge
Mix cream of tartar and hydrogen peroxide in a 1:1 ratio and spread it over rusty surfaces in your kitchen for ten to fifteen minutes. Buff the rust away with a sponge and rinse well.
Remove Rust with Potatoes
Potatoes have oxalic acid, a valuable compound to remove rust from stainless steel. It works effectively only with smaller objects such as knives, forks, or spoons.
What You’ll Need:
• Few potatoes
• Dish Soap
• A scouring sponge or steel wool
Stick your small utensils, a fork, for example, directly into a potato, and leave it for 5-6 hours. When you take the out fork, scrub the rust away.
Or, cut a potato in half, coat it in dish soap and scrub the rusted object with the potato. After scrubbing, clean it with a sponge.
