Remove Rust Easily With This Essential Garage Staple
Once rust appears, it will gradually spread to other nearby sources of iron, making it essential to deal with the problem early. Luckily, there's an easy way to do so.
While WD-40 is a lubricant, the common household item has been proven effective at eliminating rust. To begin using it, open a can of WD-40 Multi-Use and attach the straw.
Spray the rusty spots with WD-40 until they're completely coated, and allow it to sit for 10 minutes. Afterward, gently scrape away the rust with a firm yet pliable tool.
If rust is still present, repeat the previous steps. Once the rust is removed, rinse the affected area with clean water and dry it thoroughly with a clean cloth.
To clean rust stains, use the wide nozzle instead of the straw and spray the stained area with a generous amount of WD-40. Let the spray sit for 5 to 10 minutes.
Scrub the stain with an abrasive tool to remove the rust. Repeat application as necessary until the stain is removed, then wash the spot with clean water to remove any residue.
