How To Get Rust Spots Off Silverware
Sometimes the simplest things in life are the most rewarding. This is not one of those epic posts that will change your life…how to get rust spots off silverware isn’t a question that will keep you up at night. However, when I was working on a tablescape for my DIY Linen Napkin post, I nearly died when I saw nasty rust spots on my blue handled flatware. Every single knife was a mess. I knew I needed something with a bit of grit in it to remove the spots, but it couldn’t be abrasive. The first thing that came to mind was baking soda. I used it when I was cleaning out cupboards and organizing my baking zone. It took stuck-on gunk off one of the cupboards without ruining the paint.
All I did was dump a little baking soda in a small bowl and add water. I wanted a paste consistency. If you add too much water, adjust by adding more baking soda. I used my fingers and gently rubbed the paste on the blade of the knives. They all became shiny and perfectly rust-free.
