We love going to flea markets and finding great, antique pieces. Our particular joy is finding a bargain at the bottom of the pile completely covered in rust. The sellers’ eyes flicker in surprise that we want THAT one! We usually get a great price. But we have a secret weapon in these bargain hunts to renew and restore antiques, Evapo-Rust.
Evapo-Rust works great to de-rust the steel and iron treasures we find. It doesn’t matter how rusty something is. Even if it’s rusted entirely through, you get back whatever what’s left under that rust. Evapo-Rust can restore oil cans, signs, license plates, hand tools, and more.
How to Renew and Restore Antiques
Evapo-Rust is a safe, effective, and efficient rust remover. It’s also very easy to use. No scrubbing necessary. Just soak a rusty object in Evapo-Rust for 20 minutes to remove light rust or for several hours to remove extremely heavy rust.
Expert tip: Keep the item submerged if you’re soaking something for an extended time. We recommend marking a fluid line on the container after you place your object in to soak. Evapo-Rust is a water-based solution and may evaporate. If the fluid level decreases, pour water in and stir.
Evapo-Rust has an unlimited shelf life and is reusable until it stops working. You can even return unused portions to the bottle for reuse later. The liquid will change from yellow to brown and then to black. When it is black, it won’t remove any more rust. The solution is biodegradable and can be safely disposed into sewers and drains.
You can even use Evapo-Rust can as a rust-inhibitor. Just immerse a clean object in Evapo-Rust and allow to air dry to prevent rust for up to two weeks. If you’re looking for a longer-lasting solution, Rust-Block prevents your items from rusting for up to one year.
Evapo-Rust: The Secret Weapon
Evapo-Rust will not harm metals, rubber, plastic, PVC, Viton, un-rusted steel, chrome, rubber, plastic, wood, most paints, clothing, or glass. It works well on hand tools, toys, engine components, gun parts, cans, gardening tools, and much more.
