    Here is a link to this same dish before-

    I used the same process on the 1-1/2 inch tap(notice the quarter next to it!(it's a big one!)

    Ok, if you want to remove rust from steel(no aluminum or pot metal!!)

    step#1- make sure item is free from grease

    step#2-find a plastic container with a lid

    step#3-fill container with 9 parts water and 1 part FEED MOLASSES!!!(CAN BE BOUGHT VERY CHEAP AT A FEED STORE)

    STEP#4 -suspend item in mixture for 1 week

    step#5-after 1 week remove item,scrub with a brush,and rinse

    step #6-now repeat steps 4 and 5 for another week.

    STEP#7 after you rinse it off and you are happy with the rust removal,dry it well,because it will flash rust!

    After 2 weeks most items are bare steel,but you can keep putting it back in a week at a time.There is little to no labor(no sandblasting YEAH!!!!!)and doesn't harm the metal.
    Enjoy!if you have any questions just ask!
    These pieces were ready to paint,clear coat(which is what I did to these 2 pieces),or oil!
