What to do about Rusty Cones??

Hi Ladies! I have a question about how you take care of rusting cones. My boyfriends family gifted me a dress that his Grandmother had made over 25 years ago. The dress hung in the closet all those years until I came along... I've been dancing in the dress for over a year now and I've noticed that the first few rows of cones, closests to my hips are rusting rather badly. I don't want to cut the cones off and redo them considering her hands sewed those cones on. Is there any way to remove the rust from cones? They are orginial coppenhagen lids. Any advice would be greatly apperciated!

if you can isolate the metal, vinegar does a great job removing rust. Might can paint it on.

When I had some rusty lids to roll, I rubbed them with WD-40. Lots of the rust came off, except the worst spots. Just rubbing the WD-40 around on the lids gives them a protective coating. But don't use so much that it might leave a greasy stain on the fabric.

my sister had that same trouble with her's, she asked an elder for help and she said to gather her help from our sisters . they removed the rusty cones in prayer as for replacing them they sanded them polished them prayed over them for 9 months replaced all 9 cones, none of the old thread or any of the dress was cut or damaged, just untied polished and prayed over and put back on. but for your heart . have some of your sisters help you and ask premission from your elders before doing this that is the right thing to do first!! their wisdom will help your heart and people.
