Do you have a beautiful set of knives, with a nasty case of rust spots?

You’re not alone! Knives will become rusty if they have been exposed to things, such as being submerged in water, or accidentally being placed in the dishwasher. Here is an easy way to remove those stains, with one natural ingredient. And it won’t take you all afternoon to do!

A quick soak in natural lemon juice will begin the process by corroding the rust off the knives. After that, you’re only a few quick steps away from having squeaky clean knives, that look brand new again!

  • Soak knives for 5-10 minutes
  • Use the scratchy side of a sponge to scrub the rust spots off. If they do not easily come off with a little scrubbing, put them back in the lemon juice for another couple of minutes.

Easy enough, right?
