Old Tool Cleanup Tip

Cleaning up Old Tools.
Here is another trick from the list of old time solutions. Tools that have become rusty from improper storage and non-use can often be cleaned up.

Make a paste using 2 tablespoons salt and 1 tablespoon of lemon juice. Apply the paste to rusted areas with a dry cloth and rub. Rinse thoroughly and dry. Oil the tool lightly after dry.

You can clean the rust from the metal parts of a bicycle, like handlebars and tire rims the same way. Use a mix of 6 tablespoons of salt and 2 tablespoons of lemon juice to make a paste. Apply to rusted areas with a dry cloth and rub. Rinse and dry thoroughly.

Greasy stains that you track in to your car and onto the car carpet and upholstery can often be removed with a mix of equal parts of salt and baking soda. Sprinkle the powder on the stain, brush lightly, leave for a few hours, than vacuum. This both cleans and freshens the carpet.
