cast iron restoration

What is the best way to restore antique cast iron floor grates? Much of the black finish is off and there is rust.

There are 2 ways I can think of. Wire brushing, which is a tedious process or the easy way, sandblasting. Good luck.

A wire brush in a drill or angle grinder would work well.
You could also use rust remover.
