How can I clean rust from my can opener


My swing-handle can opener is completely rusty. This happened to my last one, too, and I had to throw it away. Is there any way to clean it instead?

It sounds like the rust is forming because there are parts of the can opener you can’t properly dry after washing it.

  • Use white or apple-cider vinegar and a toothbrush to scrub away the rust, then rinse off the vinegar thoroughly.
  • Dry the opener with a hair-dryer (be careful, though — the metal may get hot), making sure to get into all of the crevices.
  • When it is dry, lubricate moving parts with a little mineral oil.

You can also purchase a new can-opener at The Kitchenware Market.
