Rust can form on rods in the bathroom, your kitchen knives or even on your day-to-day tools that are made of steel or iron.
Cleaning rust is easy with aluminum foil. This low-cost method will not scratch the surface of the metal and will remove the rust very easily. Aluminum chemically reacts with rust, which helps to get rid of it.

- Rub the aluminum foil back and forth over the rusty surface. Regularly dip the foil in water whenever it gets dry.
