Tips for Removing rust, home careRemoving rust from old objects could be a tough job depending upon the amount of rusting that has been caused. There are several methods which you can follow to remove rust from items which have not been damaged to brittle yet. Take all the tools or equipment which you need to get de-oxidized. These tools may just not be connected to iron. Even copper and silver can be treated in the same way. Store these in a dry box where you already have put bags of silica gels. This will soak up the external moisture.

You can then use industrial lubricants like WD 40 and spray them over the tools. These are also called penetrating lubricants. Use a mild scrubbing material like a utensil cleaner. But never use ay other metal foil or sandpaper as you might damage the metal tool itself. If you can’t do this on your own, then send them to any hardware store where they can do it professional.
