Magic Rust Remover

Post by canal mark » Sun Mar 20, 2011 10:26 am

I'm sure everyone knew this except me, but I saw a demonstration of the magic rust remover and it amazed me. If you have rusted chrome, try this. It will work like a charm. All you need is a wad of aluminum foil and water. That's it! Dip the foil in the water and start rubbing the rusted chrome. Just like magic, the rust is gone :? . Not sure why it works, but it does. Even the real nasty pitted chrome will look a lot better when you done. Of course it won't remove pits, but it does a real good job on the rust. Give it a try, you'll be amazed! :D

Yup, you can do it even without the water if need be. It's a good idea to seal the chrome with a wax or other sealant after you do it, or the rust will just return.

Phosphoric acid eats rust if you can get it, Coke contains some Phosphoric Acid. Therefore Coke and Aluminum foil should work quite well.
Dont know why the foil works but I am willing to try most anything once.
