How To Remove Rust Stains From Stainless Steel

We really love our new apartment—really. But simultaneously we noticed our well-worn cutting board and our rust stained sink. As renters, we'd always had porcelain sinks in previous homes. We honestly thought our "new" sink was forever doomed to be rust stained—apparently, not so.

What You Need

Materials
White vinegar
Everyday scouring pad

Instructions

1. Pour a fair amount of white vinegar onto a scouring pad.

2. Using a little bit of elbow grease, scrub the affected areas in a circular motion.

3. Do a happy dance as the rust stains simply disappear.
