rusty garden tools

You keep on scrubbing your trusty garden tools to get rid of the rust, but no matter how hard you scrub the rust stays.  To clean it off, simply stick the corroded metal in a raw onion half and carefully wiggle it around to release the juices.  Let sit in the onion for one hour, then rinse away any residue and wipe dry with a lint-free cloth.  The onion’s enzymes split the rust-forming bonds between iron and oxygen, leaving your tool gleaming again.
