    Default Tip to remove rust stains from Stainless Appliances

    We just bought a stainless steel dishwasher on craigslist for $75. It works great, but there were a few pesky rust stains on the front. I googled ways to remove rust and came up with baking soda. If you dip a moistened soft bristle toothbrush or your finger (the finger worked better) in baking soda and then rub in the direction of the grain, the rust will disappear. After a little elbow grease my dishwasher looks like brand new again.

    Hope this can help someone. I love quick inexpensive fixes!

    Baking Soda is quite abrasive. I assume you could have the same results with toothpaste.
