Kerosene removes light rust well. Keep a large piece of "sidewalk"

a bag in and turned the burner down. When I checked in five minutes,
somebody had turned the burner to high. The pan's coating had blistered.
Well Mrs. B. I am quite frankly under the impression that this "Choreboy" is
putting us on...
One can only imagine if this were the days of crank gramaphones when one had
to change gramaphone needles continually - she would be in a constant state
of eroded needle uproar!
