How do you get rust off of a Teflon coated baking dish?
By Denise from Benecia, CA
Sprinkle some Baking Soda on the rust and then add few drops of vinegar. If there is rust, that means that the TFE has been chipped away. Throw the pan away!
Yes, if rust is coming through the Teflon coating then it's no longer safe to use for food but instead of throwing it away please, please recycle it somehow! We are way too much of a throw away world :-(
If you don't have a local recycling center that will take it you can always use it for seeding plants, as a potted plant water catcher, an inbox for your desk, to place cleaning supplies in under your sink, etc. The sky is the limit in how you can reuse it! I have a large pot that was doing the same thing and I now use it as a pan to put warm soapy water in to soak my feet when they're sore or before giving myself a pedicure ;-)
You could post another request for ideas for how to use it for crafts, too, and I'll bet you'll receive lots of ideas ;-)
