There are many expensive chemical rusting solutions on the market, but before you head to the store to pick them up, head to your kitchen.

According to House Digest, you can easily remove rust from metal with aluminum foil.

“Aluminum foil is a cheap, easy, and hassle-free way to remove rust because it chemically dissolves iron oxides by attracting oxygen molecules,” the experts write.

“That makes physically removing rust with scouring powder and steel wool a better option.”

Aluminum foil is soft, so it’s less likely to damage your favorite sauce pan or stock pot.

Chemical compounds that are highly acidic can make the metal less durable, while steel wool can dull surfaces.

You can use aluminum foil around the house, but it’s particularly effective at making chrome super shiny and removing tarnish from silverware.

Create a solution of warm salt water or a water and vinegar bath.

You don’t want the solution to be too strong, so don’t go beyond a 1:1 ratio of vinegar to water.

Then wet a piece of aluminum foil in the solution. You can use a larger piece, a ball of foil, or a strip.

Choose what is easiest to get into the nooks and crannies of your item. If necessary, take more foil and wet it again in the solution.

If rust comes off the item, wipe it off with a dry, clean rag or cloth.

You should safely dispose of the grate, as it can have sharp edges, and discard the aluminum foil while you’re at it.

The cloth can be rinsed and washed as usual and your rusted item will be as good as new – and if rust starts to build up again you’ll have a whole roll of foil to take care of it.
