First off I would like to thank everyone for their contributions to this forum. I have found so much valuable information. :) Thus, I am hoping to get some advice regarding the removal of rust from stainless steel.
-the surface we have found rust is on a non food contact surface of stainless steel 304.
-we believe it is due to iron contamination from cutting equipment or other tools used during the manufacturing of the equipment -- i believe the technical term is "Rouging"?
My question is if anyone has come across this and if there is a "food safe" way to remove this rust. Perhaps with a cleaner/solvent? The hope is to remove the contamination so that the aesthetics and the smooth surface of the stainless steel can be restored.
Thank you in advance,
