You can clean rusty buts by soaking them in lemon juice or
Vinegar. Then have a good scrub, And a rinse. Then dry the bit leaving no moisture as this causes rust. If you have no lemon juice or vinegar a paste made out of water abs baking soda would also do the job.

Sweet Iron bits are supposed to rust I think, it has something to do with the taste?

I prefer to stick them in a tub of CocaCola! Does a far better job then lemon juice or vinegar!

If you get the rust off and the bit is undamaged (i.e has no sharp edges) then it is fine to use.
