Question rusted canner rack

I got a water bath canner last week for $1.00 at my local thrift store. The rack that holds the jars is slightly rusted (otherwise it is in great shape). I was wondering if you have any suggestions on cleaning the rack up a little bit. Thanks for your help!

Try some good old elbow grease and brillo... there are rust cleaners on the market...try..ZUD Powder Rust and Stain Cleaner by Reckitt Benckiser about $6.00 a can

or it just might not be worth it in the long run.............

Steel wool, soap pads. works good on rusty spokes and parts on bicycles, too. Hubby uses it on rusty tools.

I would try an SOS pad...if that doesn't take off the rust, take the rack outside, spray with oven cleaner and place in a large garbage bag. Leave overnight and rinse off. May have to do this a couple of times. We did this with a barbque grill that was rusted and it woked great. Just make sure you rinse it VERY well. Hope these ideas help!
