Step 1: What We Need

- for stainless steel and other fine surfaces use only rags not to get any scratches

Step 3: Finishing

- apply Coca Cola to rusted surface and wait few minutes

- try to open rusted nut

- if there is no success, apply again some Coca Cola and wait

- repeat steps few times if necessary

- for stainless steel surface you can use an plastic wire brush or just rags
