Prepare the Used Irons
Before you begin the restoration process, it is important to make sure your used irons are cleaned thoroughly. First, you will need lemons, a two-liter cola, soap, metal polish, and rags or towels. Wash your clubs in warm, soapy water before rinsing and drying with a cotton cloth. If there are any rust spots you will want to apply lemon juice to the problem spots. Make sure you are using real lemons and not imitation lemon juice. Cut the lemons in half and rub the rusted spots with the open half.
Allow the lemon juice to sit on your used irons overnight before washing them again the next morning. After the lemon application, you want to create a mixture of two gallons of water with two liters of cola. Allow the clubs to soak overnight. If you do not have a bucket or container large enough to hold the club, soak towels in the mixture and wrap around the rust spots overnight.

Remove the clubs from the mixture the next morning and rinse them with warm water. If any rust remains you can use steel wool to softly scrub the remainder away. After the ruse has been removed, apply metal polish to shine up your used irons. Slowly rub the metal polish on in circular motions until the metal is buffed. Your clubs should be as good as new at this point. You can further refinish your used irons with an electric buffer to apply a high polish or satin finish – depending on your preferred aesthetic.
