Are some of your tools or cookware plagued by rust that won’t come off? We found this trick that works well for most rust problems, and all it requires is some salt, lemon and elbow grease. Check it out:

Recently, I had to clear off a rust stain in a tub after an ill-advised bleach session. So, I made a paste by dumping some lemon juice into the tub and then adding enough salt to thicken it a bit. Then, I left it for about four hours. When I returned, I wiped the rust away with a rag. This method should work with everything from tools to clothes to bicycles.
