Cover each stain with a thick layer of table salt.
Pour fresh lemon juice over the salt to completely saturate it.
Leave the plate in a cool, dry place overnight.
Brush away the salt from the plate in the morning with a sponge or soft cloth.
Wash the areas where the rust spots were with warm soapy water. Repeat the process if necessary or if you need to remove spots on the opposite side of the plates.
