    Neither would I. I would have thought foil would scratch, but it did beautifully. That was quite a find. Wish I had an eye for stuff that could be transformed.

    oooh,..I wonder if this would work on rust spots on my “stainless” steel grill! Definitely worth a try!

    They look so great!! I just saw this table I like, but it was rusty and I had no clue how to get the rust off! Awesome!

    I would’ve tried a Brillo pad. Good to know about the foil solution.

    Great idea. I have also used Coke! (think how they use it to remove rust from car batteries…works on chrome furniture too!)

    I tried the foil, removed the rut but till left with pitted table legs, not looking so good.
