Removing rust from stainless steel


can someone help me remove rust from a stainless steel table?

Dear M.L.Albert:

Rust can easily and effectively be removed with one of several citric acid based products that we market. More details are needed to know the exact situation, but usually CitriSurf 2210 can be applied to the rust areas to remove it. Depending on the severity of the rusting, you may want to heat the product to 160F, or so, to speed up the operation.

Again, depending on the desired result, Scotch Brite can be used to speed the operation and give the surface an even, textured look. If you do not want to scratch the surface, you cannot do this!
