I'm looking to remove rust and corrosion off steel and brass
Last summer I used oven cleaner on a pile of padlocks that look like they were dropped in a bucket of paint and then tarred. After some scrubbing and getting the gunk out most of them work and look great. I'd do it again.
For rust remove which is safe on hands and can be used indoor check out metal rescue (official spelling may be different), its a water based rust remove and it works wonders. Not an instant remover but safer and works better than vinegar plus its pretty check too. a big jug is $20.
