How to Remove Rust from Silverware: This quick and easy solution to remove the dreaded brown stains on silverware is finally here!

I have to admit something.  I throw everything I can, in to the dishwasher.  This can be a no-no for my silverware.  You know, the kind that says “hand wash only?”  Yeah, I probably won’t be buying that kind again.

I love entertaining.

And there’s nothing worse than pulling out my place settings for dinner guests, with silverware that has nasty rust spots on it, making it look like I didn’t even wash it.

Yuck.

The other day, I had.. had IT.  We had people coming over for dinner, and they were due to arrive in 5 minutes.

I whipped out the steak knives, and OF COURSE, there it was.  Rust covered silverware.

Looking around, I realized I had a little somethin’ somethin’ under the sink, that may work.   Meet my new little friend…

Literarily, two swipes with a wet magic eraser and the rust is gone.  Well, for my silverware this time.  I suppose it depends on how bad the rust is on what you’re cleaning.

Look What Else This Thing Does at My House

I use the magic eraser for EVA-REE-THANG!  No, they’re not paying me to tell you that.  I truly do.  I wish they’d pay me to tell you that though.  How cool would THAT be?

Here’s a quick (horrible photo) of some trim I just wiped down to show you what else I use my magic eraser for.  My boys LOVE pushing “things,” around the house.  Cars/Tractors/Wagons/Etc.  Well, sometimes they accidentally “ram,” it in to the trim.  (No, I don’t “let,” them do this… but it happens.)

They can put a hurtin’ on it with scuff marks.  So I simply wet a magic eraser and go to town.  It’s not nearly as easy as the silverware trick-a-roo, but it works.

You can see that there are a few scuff marks still. That’s frankly because my arm was tired, and my boys were wanting me to go play with them.
(So I did)  I’ll finish tomorrow.

If you haven’t given the magic erasers a try yet… I say they’re a MUST for every household.  I always keep em in stock.  Go see my “How I Remove Chalk from my Chalkboard,” post, to see what other item I use with magic erasers to get the tough chalk off.

Hope this helps you all!

What are you going to try a Magic Eraser on?
