Default lure spring cleaning

Made a BAD mistake and all my metal hooks on my lure have rusted over. What can I use to get the rust off?

thanks

Hydrochloric acid?

Wire cutters?

Replace them. You spend a lot of time and money finding fish.....losing one due to a bad 50 cent hook will not make you a happy fisherman.

If it's just light corrosion, lightly sand it off and sharpen the hook with a file.
