Question about Freezers
I bought a second hand small chest freezer and the bottom is rusting.
How can I prevent this or do I need to replace the metal pan liner it sits on?
Could the rust eventually eat to the inside of the freezer?

Tips for a great answer:
Hello nnwaldron - Try the following suggestions below; if it prove to be ineffective then the liner will need replacing.
1) Dip a moist, soft toothbrush in a box of baking soda. Very gently, in the direction of the stainless grain, rub back and forth on the appliance. The mild abrasive action will get into the grain without damaging it. You can use your finger (instead of a toothbrush) for even better results.
2) Rinse the baking soda off with a warm, damp (not wet) paper towel. Dry thoroughly. You may see or smell rust on the paper towel or toothbrush. That means it is working!
3) Finally, dry the appliance thoroughly. You don't want to leave any water that could cause more rust.
