Rusty cast iron pans! can it be rescued?

Spoonula | Mar 31, 2008 05:52 AM

I have three Lodge cast iron skillets. I don't think my husband seasoned them very well (bless his heart he was trying to be helpful....) I got frustrated because scrambled eggs stuck and tasted like nails so I stuck the skillets under the counter and forgot about them.
They had been in storage for about two years when I thought about giving them another try. Much to my dismay they have rust spots on them.
I've searched the posts and the internet and can't find anything that tells me what to do!
Should I scour them with a Brillo pad and get the rust off and then try to reseason? Is there another trick?
Or is rust the killer of my skillets?
HELP!
