Cleaning Cast Iron/Porcelain Surfaces



2004

I recently "rescued" an old Cast Iron Stove that was stored in an old barn at a farmhouse. The stove belonged to my wife's Grandmother and I brought it home for her to be able to enjoy. We placed it outside and want to restore it as much as possible. I am not sure how to clean the cast iron or the porcelain surfaces, any ideas?

If you want to save any remains of old original finish then use oil based rust remover ( WD-40 [affil. link to info/product on Amazon] or any similar proprietary product). Process is slow but safe. If you want to renew your kiln then you can use 5% citric acid solution gelled with cellulose based wallpaper glue(or any proprietary product).

Good luck!
