So here’s what I did. I got a piece of foil out, folded it so no sharp edges were showing and rinsed it under the tap, shook off the excess water and scrubbed away in a back and forth, NOT, circular motion. It smelled a little funny and produced some icky black watery stuff but the rust was gone! And there weren’t any scratches which is what I was thinking would happen. I then wiped away said yucky black watery stuff and cleaned it with a paper towel.
I’ve tried it on my Kohler stainless steel shower head – A+ results. I’ve tried it on some mirror closet doors that had some sort of stuck on yuckiness that Windex, Mister Clean Magic Eraser, a razorblade AND CLR couldn’t remove. A+ results. A vintage stainless steel coffee tin. A+ results. So far so good and no scratches.
Be sure to test in an inconspicuous area first ( I don’t want to ruin anything of yours that is valuable). I am so happy and satisfied when I can clean something without buying some crazy expensive product that may or may not work and is going to give me cancer in the process. Yay!!
Be Blessed and happy foil scrubbing!
