Have done the lemon juice and borax and left soaking for 3-4 hrs and then hard scrub and this didn't work. Any other ideas?

    Hi Samantha: Have you tried OxyClean or CLR? Or, get some of that stuff called Totally Awesome Rust, Calcium and Lime remover from the Dollar Tree. That has always worked for me. Let it sit for about 1/2 hour and then rinse. Good luck

      Hi Betsy. Tried CLR with 3-4 hour soak (not diluted), tried bleach (non diluted) with 1 hour soak. Nothing has worked. Any other ideas?

    Hi Samantha,

    I've had good luck scrubbing rust spots with baking soda then adding the mixture of equal parts of vinegar and water with a few drops of Dawn to clear it all away. If that doesn't work, I'd try CLR next. Wishing you the best.

    CLR should do the trick. :)

    Hi Samantha: Try to buy some Totally Awesome Rust, Calcium and Lime remover from the Dollar Tree. That has always worked for me. Let it sit for about 1/2 hour and then rinse. Also, you can try a product callled Naval Jelly. That works really great on metal, should work on your enamel. Good luck

    Wear gloves eye protection with Naval Jelly! (& maybe with the Totally Awesome Rust, Calcium and Lime remover and/or CLR!

      Oh, definitely wear gloves with the naval jelly:) Just follow the directions on the container.
