Hi I'm Rachel Yatuzis, and I'm going to show you how to remove rust stains from your counter tops. Maybe you had something metal like this sitting on your counter tops. And if there was any water built up around it that you didn't notice. One you decided to clean your counter tops. You pick it up, and there is a rust stain. The easiest way to clean it off, and I'll promise you it will come off is with a paste that you make from the juice out of one lemon. Squeeze the entire lemon into a bowl. Add baking soda which I've already mixed this up before. Mix it up really well with a here let's get a spoon. Mix it up a little bit until it's into a paste like this. You've got it you know it's probably the consistency of honey, something like that. Next you want to get a paper towel or a rag or a napkin. Dip it in your paste and just apply it to the stain. This will get the rust right off. If there's some sub stubborn spots on your rust stain, what you want to do is apply the paste to it and let it sit for fifteen to thirty minutes and that'll really bring the rust up out of the porous surface of your counter tops. And after that wipe it clean with your wet, wet cloth or sponge. I am Rachel Yatuzis, and that is how you remove a rust stain from a counter top.
