How to restore rusty hinges?

This is another in the series of the amazing power of vinegar series.

We had some rusty iron hinges from an old table. We were looking for a replacement set, but in these things nothing quite fits like the originals.

They were rusty and seized.
Some research on the process and this really did work

  • Soak in pure vinegar overnight
  • Brush with a wire brush and the rust falls away
  • Work hinges to loosen further and work in the vinegar
  • Soak again overnight
  • Dry and then drop in Oil (we used cheap motor oil)
  • Dry and then are ready to go

It really does work!
