Try some rust eater, e.g. "Hamerites" jelly

Clean it off with a brush and elbow grease.

grind/sand it off, then use a rust neutralizer so it doesn't come back. If you want to cover it up, then hit it with some etching primer, then paint over it with whatever.

honestly if its just surface rust steel wool and WD40 (or similar) is awesome.

people use aluminum foil and PB blaster, lots of variations

Re: How to remove rust?

The super coarse Scotch Brite pads, the fat ones, work even better than a wire wheel and are easier to handle. Then some sort of ospho type stuff.

If it's just surface rust on chrome; I use 0000 steel wool, and then wax it.

I recently used the aluminum foil and water treatment and it worked "ok" although my rust was fairly significant therefore did not expect miracles. I bought some type rust remover from Canadian Tire that did NOTHING.

Muriatic acid will make rust magically disappear very quickly. Usually without harming paint. Adequate ventilation required. Neutralize by rinsing with water. .

Home depot $8 for a gallon.

Re: How to remove rust?

muriatic is just HCl - hydrochloric acid. usually pretty strong too like 10M. Chlorine ions are awesome at reacting with iron, even iron oxide (rust). best bet is diluted and you'll dissolve the oxide. typically you're just trying to dissolve just the bridge between the rust and the metal so scrubbing makes it much more efficient - it dissolves the base and lets you scrub the solids off without having to dissolve the whole thing. wash it well though or it just keeps eating away at your metal.

it works, like crazy but wear thick legit gloves and a facemask and don't be an idiot, that's some strong acid.

Most muriatic that is sold is already diluted. 60%???

Don't warte your money on the safe "green" muriatic.

Evaporust, and reuse it over and over again.
