Default Re: My First Gatemarked Antique is Cracked and Needs Cleaning.

If only rusty, see the website article on cleaning using a vinegar/water solution along with a stainless steel scrubber and/or steel wool. For display only purposes, you can use mineral oil, also noted in the website seasoning article, to rustproof it.
