I've used this recipe before and it works really well. As a word freak and former restaurant supply saleswoman, the noun for the 'points' on a fork is, "tines". Pronounced, 'tyne'. Clean on!!!

I'm hoping this will work to get rust from between fork spokes. I've tried a bunch of stuff to get rust off my Grandma's set.
