Vinegar Method:

  1. Fill a glass with enough white vinegar to submerge the entire blade of the knife.
  2. Place the knife in the vinegar and let it sit for at least five minutes.
  3. Remove the knife from the vinegar and use a sponge to scrub away the rust. 

Baking Soda Method:

Mix water and baking soda in to a paste consistency.  Gently rub the paste on the spots.
