I saw a pin on Pinterest showing how lemon juice gets rid of rust spots on knives. Almost all of my knives are rusty and it drives me CRAZY!! So, why not give it a try! Does it work? People claim it works and it’s all over Pinterest, so I put it to the test. Did it work for me?
Here’s my knives with their rust spots. The Pampered Chef Santuko knife I use all the time, and it’s starting to show some rust. My other Farberware knives are completely rusty. Ugh.
Well, after 10 minutes of soaking (I didn’t have a lot of lemon juice on hand, so only the tips really got a good soak) and a light scrub with the abrasive side of the sponge…
Obviously lemon juice doesn’t work. I’d sure love to know how others who’ve tried this - and had it work - did it. Maybe my lemon juice was bad? Is there a secret trick I’m missing? Share with me your success.
Here’s a comparison…do you see a difference? Maybe I need glasses!
All I can say is that my experiment with lemon juice and rust is a failure!! I wasted what was left of my lemon juice and a half hour of my life! Just kidding. A good ‘ol fashioned Brillo or S.O.S. pad is far easier, saving time, effort, and money!! Look! Fabulous results!! (sorry it’s a bit blurry…so much for iPhone camera!)
Have any of you tried this before? If so, did it work? If not, did you try any other methods?
Keep on keeping on!
