oh sweet mercy...


so we moved houses a while ago...like march or april i think, and i believe it was in that move, although that is not actually confirmed, where i lost my pair of gingher scissors. this made me very sad, one: because i HATE losing things. it really urkes me when i lose stuff and two: those scissors were 1)expensive, 2)they were a gift and 3)i really liked them. they are wonderful sewing scissors and they may even be like the pair your mom had and strictly forbade you to cut paper with....you see where i am going with this? so they were gone. then kendall decided to clean out the honda including the trunk. and there(with a bright light shining around them and angels singing in the background) were my beloved scissors! it's probably weird to get so excited about finding them but i totally am. and then i saw they have rust on them...that is just criminal! anyone know how to removed rust from metal? anyway, thought i'd share my jubilation at finding what was lost. I always believed you would come home, my gingher friend!

So, I know all about these scissors. When I was in sixth grade our school ran a special where you could buy a pair for $10. Can you believe that cost? My grandma was in heaven and bought a pair. Looking back I'm shocked she didn't buy 10 pairs.
I don't know how to help you with your rust problem. I would look on the scissor's website, I'm sure you're not the only one with this issue.
AND, did you end up getting that staple gun for your b-day? I'm in need of your help (what else is new?)

My mom was always very protective of her scissors. I didn't understand why until I started sewing as an adult! Glad you found them!

I've recently discovered that baking soda can single handedly cure almost any problem you may have. Maybe a baking soda paste? I think I also read somewhere that lemon juice can get the stains off of stainless steel pots, could it get rust off too? Perhaps.

Boy, you got to that tag fast!

I remember you talking about missing them. I have the bar tender's keeper cleaning product that is supposed to remove rust. I've never had to use it for that reason, but it's worth a try. Jake looked this up for you too. http://www.ehow.com/video_3141_remove-rust.html
