MOM Tip: How To Clean Rust Off Loaf Tins

tinsMOM Tip: Don’t toss those rust bread loaf tins. You can easily remove the rust with a little olive oil, some baking soda, water and a scourer.

Materials Needed:

  • baking soda
  • water
  • a scourer
  • oil


1. Rinse the pan and shake it dry

2. Dust it lightly with baking soda (it should stick because of the remaining water) making sure you cover the spots that are rusting

3. Leave the dusted pans for about half an hour.

4. Clean the pan gently with a scourer making sure you get rid of all the rust leaving just the exposed metal underneath.

5. Rinse the pan to get rid of all the baking soda and towel dry it.

6. To make sure your pan doesn’t rust again coat it with oil.

7. And you’re done! Ready to bake your own everything!

Additional Notes:
The pans build up a layer of oil, so don’t panic if they aren’t spotless. They’re not meant to be and they get better with use. Rust, however, is a different matter so clean the pan if it needs it and oil them once or twice a year. Avoid the dishwasher if you want to avoid rust and just clean the pans lightly after use.
