    I wash fishing lures with soap and water and air dry. If your talking about rusty hooks , I cut them off and replace with a good premium hook.

    the soft drink will help take the rust off of anything. just dont leave it in there to long or it will eat the metal completely up. just a few hours or maybe over nite

    DONT USE A WIRE WHEEL!~!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I WAS STUPID ONCE. we went to a lake here and rented a small boat to fish from. we having no luck began going around the shore in the crystal clear water retrieving lures with the tips of our rods. got 20 or so off of sticks limbs and old timber in the water.

    some had moss ect on them. i tried to stick one in a whire wheel of my paps grinder. needless to say i sat on the toilet with a pair of pliers and placed my thumb on the edge of the sink. the first tug got the barb out of my cartiladge. the second that turned me white and made me dizzy got the barb back out of my skin.:eek:oooh:

    Dip them valuable in some chemical CLR and rinse with clear water.

    I agree with Mickey, hooks are relatively cheap, i would change them. A pair of ring pliers will save your thumb nail too.
