Rusting with old bed springs

My friend Kate found this wonderful treasure in a woods near her - mattress springs and very, very rusty.
She had taken them apart, harder than it looks and then gave them to her "rusting" friends.
So I'm experimenting, now that the hot weather is here and the time for rusting.
After I soaked the scarf in a vinegar and water solution, I went to town with the rust.
Why use a little when a LOT will do even better.  Will keep you posted.


  1. And the results? Inquiring minds want to know.

  2. The results were good where the circle touched the fabric but because the springs weren't perfectly flat, it was touch and go...I would have liked more distinct circles but the rusted areas were very rusty and pretty against the blue.

  3. Well nice information you are providing so far. as far as concern with these springs. then it means we should avoid such kind of products.
