Household Hint: Rust – remove rust from nuts, bolts or nails, etc., by placing them in a glass jar, covering them with vinegar, sealing jar and letting stand overnight. Rusty tools can be revived in same manner, soak in pure vinegar for several hours. Just rub away rust. Change vinegar if it becomes cloudy before rust is softened.
