We are listing a few tips from move in cleaning Overland Park professionals on how to remove rust from metal in order for homeowners to work their way through their favorite cookbook without having to worry about how soon they will need a new skillet.
Remove Rust from Metal Baking Pans– You need to make sure that your baking pans are absolutely free from rust. For that you will need a raw potato, dishwashing liquid or baking soda and a dry microfiber cloth.
First and foremost, cut the potato into half and dip the cut end of the potato in dishwashing liquid or baking soda. Scrub the rusty part of your pan by using this end of the spud. Continue with it until there is no rust left on your pan. Rinse your baking pan and dry your pan with a microfiber cloth.
Cast Iron Rust Removal– Do not go into panic mode if you find rust on your cast-iron skillet because the nasty orange patches can be removed. You will need a potato, kosher salt, a kitchen towel and newspaper, baking parchment or something similar.
First and foremost, lay newspaper or parchment paper on the area where you will work which will help you with cleanup. Cut the potato crosswise in half. Coat the bottom of the pan with kosher salt. Scrub the rusted areas by holding the potato with the cut side facing the surface of the skillet, the salt basically acts as the cleaning product while the potato is the cleaning tool. If you notice that the end of the potato has started to slick, cut it off and keep scrubbing; in the same way, if your salt starts to get dirty, rinse the pan out and add fresh granules. After removing all the rust from your skillet, rinse it with water and dry it out with your kitchen towel.
Rust Removal from Knives– A cook’s best knife is irreplaceable so any visible spots have to be removed ASAP. You will need distilled white vinegar, a glass or container large enough to hold the knife, a scrubbing sponge and a dry microfiber cloth.
Fill up your glass or container with vinegar. Place your knife in the glass with all the rust spots submerged. Let your knife soak for about 5 minutes. Then remove the knife and scrub the rusted areas gently with the scouring side of your sponge. Rinse the knife with cold water and dry with a microfiber cloth.
Now, that you know how to remove rust from pans and metal utensils, hopefully, the tips will prove to be highly beneficial for you.
