I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Rust Remover - Natural VS Chemical

So I needed to get rid of some rust on a "stainless steel" ?!?! shower shelf.

I looked up natural ways to do it and came up with a few. The most promising looked like a lemon cut in half with salt or vinegar.
This is what I started with..............gross!
I started scrubbing with my salt covered lemon.  
It seemed to take a little rust off, but not much.
Then I tried an old toothbrush soaked in vinegar.
That's better.  Look at all that splatter !
But I'm not going to lie.  I had to finish off with a soapy scouring pad and window cleaner.
It still took a lot of elbow grease, but I think the chemical method worked better.
Sorry environment : (
