Rust Removal

Is Easy-Peasy With Vinegar

 

A while back, Luke went to the Model T Swap Meet — an annual event for over 60 years. Luke, as you may know, builds and restores hot rods and classic cars for a living. So, these types of shows and swap meets are firmly imprinted on our calendar. You can check out some of our other adventures here.

This trip to the Model T Swap Meet, Luke came home with some new-found treasures. An old metal chisel and a couple of punches in sizes he did not already own. Needless to say, he was thrilled. These tools were in pretty great shape considering they are antiques, just a bit on the rusty side. Vinegar makes rust removal a snap. The vinegar actually does most of the work for you.

Honestly, you only need a few things to remove rust from metal tools, etc.

  • Vinegar
  • Plastic or glass container
  • Steel wool

Simply place the tools into your container and pour undiluted vinegar over them. Let them sit. You will see bubbles as the vinegar reacts with the rust.

Every so often, check on the rust removal progress. Once you think all the rust is removed that will be, remove the tools and rinse them in water.

Then, you can see any remaining rust spots and give them a little wipe with some steel wool. The rust has been loosened with the vinegar, so it rubs off quick and easy.

Rinse and dry tools thoroughly. See how great they look? These antique tools have lost some of their paint from age, use, and the vinegar. If that bothers you, you can spray them with some rust-resistant paint.

Is this not the easiest way to de-rust things? And you probably have everything you need to do the job sitting around your house or garage.

I’m sharing with you today a recipe for a delicious and refreshing red, white, and blue salad that is wonderful anytime, but especially fun for those Star-Spangled holidays–Watermelon, Blueberry & Feta Salad.

This watermelon salad will not only be a big hit for its fabulous flavor, but also for its fun and festive appearance.

Tip for Cutting Watermelon

If you are just wanting bite-sized chunks of watermelon for this salad or any other time, try this easy cutting tip.

  1. Cut your watermelon in half.
  1. Using a knife, cut along the outer edge of the red, along the rind.
  1. Now, take the knife and cut through the ripe fruit (but not through the rind), making strips or vertical lines.
  1. Then cut perpendicular lines, so it resembles a checker board.
  1. Scoop out the watermelon using a large spoon. Scoop horizontally to make chunks.

All the juices stay within the rind making for easy clean-up.

Here’s a Printable Recipe just for you… Enjoy!
