I just can't help it. Every time this pops up in the sidebar - even though I've read the whole thread and responded twice- I think, "Now whatever could that person have done to their medical marijuana that they are worried about its safety?"

LOL!

Am I the only one who read the title of this thread and thought the OP found mold on her marijuana buds or something like that?!

The last thing I need in my blood is more iron.
Donating blood if you are able will help to bring down your iron stores.

Iron above a certain amount is very toxic, and will be stored in the organs of your body. The body only uses approx 1 mg of iron a day so it can build up in your system. The most common genetic disease there is that nobody has heard of is Iron Overload, or Hemochromatosis which can kill you. People of Celtic, and Northern European heritage are more apt to have inherited this. About 1/4 of the Irish have it. I do, and give blood to bring down the levels. And I avoid cast iron cookware, and anything with iron in it. Women are protected by the blood loss of their periods till after meno. Men don't have that protection. When you lose blood the body pulls iron from storage in your organs to make new blood lowering the storage iron levels.

Donating blood just one time a year can lower risk of heart attack in men by 50%. This from the link below.

My crab steaming pot is similar and over the years it has gotten a little rust in spots. Guess Old Bay, salt and vinegar have take their tolls on it.

Any grocery store will have vinegar. Just buy a gallon of the cheapest white vinegar on the shelves and leave the metal covered with it until the rust is gone. This works for any rusty object, like scissors, knives, or what have you. Once you clean it up, you can paint the rusty spots with phosphoric acid, which is sold under the trade name of "Rust Reformer." It will keep the rust from reappearing. Follow the directions on the can.
thanks for the tip. Our air fryer even gets a little rust on it if we leave it to dry. Usually I can get the rust out pretty easy. I am not about to toss everything that has a little rust on it. I guess I am just not as paranoid about some things as others.

Barkeeper's friend can get rid of rust.
Do you have any lids from other pans to try?

Why keep around a rusty pot? They are so inexpensive now just go and pick up a replacement.

If it's just the underside of the lid that has a couple of rust spots, no big deal. If you are concerned it is leaking iron, cover the underside of the lid with tin foil, bringing it up and over onto the top of the lid. Use the lid as normal.

Problem solved.
