Default Re: Rust Removal

The 50/50 solution of lemon juice and vinegar works very well. I have used it for years when doing restoration projects which require using the original factory hardware.
Try it, you'll like it.
Soak the parts for 24 to 36 hours. Do not leave them soaking for much longer than that though or it can do damage. I have experimented with it on junk parts and have completely dissolved small brackets and screws. After a month, nothing but brown mush at the bottom of the glass jar.
