We have had some previous postings about soaking cast iron parts in a molasses bath to remove rust. I have had some recent email questions about it, so I have created this thread and anyone that has information or questions can post them here.
Here is a page from Ken Christison about Molasses Rust Removal. Ken is "heavily involved in sorghum/molasses making on the web", and says that he will provide some more links on his page.

To make a long story short, after viewing some u-tube videos on molasses derusting I went to my local farm Co-Op store and purchased 15 litres of molasses. I used a 10 water to 1 molasses mixture and covered some rusted parts just to try it out (after a couple of days it didn't seem to be working). I then discovered that what I had bought was not sulfured. Can I just add some sulfur dioxide to the mixture (and in what ratio)? or should I just throw the stuff out?

Go back to the farm store and get milk-stone remover.Use it full strength and submerge the parts in it.Its not caustic and when your done you can pour it down the drain.

Your other option if your in a hurry is to go to your local auto parts place and pick up a bottle or two of Evapo-rust. This stuff is pricy (9 bucks a bottle)but it is vary effective. Just soak the parts in it for a few days the rust will be gone. It uses a chemical chilation process that actually converts some of the rust back to iron and the true iron oxides are disolved into the solution. No acids none of that.
