I have cleaned and restored cast iron for a lot of years . I cleand one pan that was brown with rust. I cook with it today. Vinegir is the way to go. Just soak it in vinegar for at least 4 hours . Clean it with steel wool . If all the rust is not gone rinse it in cold water. (vinegar is a acid . Then put it down for anouther 4 hours till it is gone . THEN if it has food crust on it ?? well talk to me later . Thats anouther post .
