Similarly, how do you remove rust from metal furniture? Mix baking soda with water or hydrogen peroxide (for hard rust) and prepare a thick paste. Gently apply this acid-based solution using a cleaning cloth or pad on the rusty metal surface and leave it there for about 15-20 minutes. Now, scrub off the area with some abrasive until rusting particles are removed.

Metal Cleaners and Polishes Aluminum: using a soft cloth, clean with a solution of cream of tartar and water. Brass or bronze: polish with a soft cloth dipped in lemon and baking-soda solution, or vinegar and salt solution. Another method is to apply a dab of ketchup on a soft cloth and rub over tarnished spots.
