In Response To: How to clean up oxidized hardware? (Judy)

Oxalic acid will dissolve mild rust, apply with a brush and rub gently. When you see that the rust is loosened, rinse with hot water, wipe dry and follow this with a light mist of WD-40. If the metal needs a finish, then wipe clean with a paint thinner and clear coat with a brass lacquer to prevent further rusting.
