Rusted Cast Iron Isn't Ruined. It Can Be Saved!

Use a plugged sink or bucket large enough to fit the entire Cast Iron in.

Soak using equal parts water and vinegar to submerge your rusted Cast Iron

Having equal parts prevents the acid from  ruining the Cast Iron

Soak for 30 minutes to 8 hours depending on how bad the rust is.

Scrub away rust using Steel Wool and soapy water.

Usually you don't use soap with cast iron but this time its ok

Rinse using warm water

Dry the cast iron thoroughly to avoid rusting again. 

Re-Season using Vegetable or Grape Seed Oil
