I apologize in advance if someone already posted about this or if I sound dumb...haha. I am a newbie and hope that you guys can help.
I just bought a set of cutters last week and lo and behold they have rusted :*(.
I am wonering if there is any way to save them (obviously I do not want to use them unless I can get the rust off).
I am usually very careful with my cutters and was really upset when it happened...any ideas or should I just chalk it up to a loss?
Thanks a ton!

Try SOS pads if they are just slightly rusted - haven't used these on cutters but have on other items and it works well. Not sure what to do if the rust is heavy - can you return these?

I wish that I could return them but I bought them on ebay..oh well...just need to be more careful I guess.
Thanks! icon_smile.gif

I don't know if this works or not, but I just read a post in another forum on how to remove rust from icing tips...many people suggested to soak them in Coca Cola. It's worth a try.

Thank you so much for the idea, if it works for tips I son't see why it wouldn't work for cutters. I will try it icon_smile.gif!
