Hi there! What's a good DIY cleaner/paste to make to remove rust

Hello fellow DIY warriors! I have a beautiful french style serving cart on wheels with a marble top. The elaborate frame is brass and a pewter type metal. It has formed an ugly rust on the metal I tried Brasso, no results. Any genius ideas? I guess living in South Florida's humidity was the culprit! Thanks!~

    Try "The Works" Rust removal. I buy it at the dollar store and it works! You have to let it sit for awhile before rinsing it off but I've had good luck with it.

    make a paste of equal parts salt, flour, and white vinegar. Apply the paste to the brass and let sit for up to an hour. Rinse with warm water and buff dry.
