What is the best way to clean old rusty railroad spikes??

by Julie
My husband recently came into some rusty railroad spikes and we want to use them in coat racks etc. but was wondering if anyone has a good idea of how to remove most of the rust and then we will spray paint them with rustoleum probably. Should they be soaked in something or just wire brush them or what? Thanks everyone!
