Our RV frame got very rusty while staying on the coast for a year with our RV, we need to get rid of it and paint it, but difficult since you have to crawl underneath and I don't want to hurt the plastic cover in between the frames. Will this product be good for that?

Answer: 
Krud Kutter Metal Clean and Etch will work great to remove the rust from a metal surface and leave it ready for paint. However, without knowing more about the type of plastic we do not recommend allowing the product to come into contact with the plastic. If the product does by mistake get on the surface, rinse well to avoid damage.

Use on a steel handsaw

This question is from 32 oz. Metal Clean and Etch
Asked by
Philadelphia (where the saw was made)

January 9, 2016
I am restoring some handsaws that came down from my grandfather. At the end of restoration, I want bare steel that will be wiped down after each use with a suitable rust inhibitor. After a couple experimental passes with a belt sander, the steel came up clean and shining, and the manufacturer's etching could be clearly seen. That would be identified as being made by a famous saw maker at the turn of the last century.
Needless to say, I do no intend to paint anything. The brass will be polished, the wood handle (with thumb hole) cleaned and finished properly. I absolutely do not want to cover, hide, or otherwise obliterate the manufacturer's etching.
Are any of these products suitable, say, near the beginning of the cleaning process?

Answer: 
Krud Kutter Metal Clean and Etch will clean the steel handsaws, however, it will likely etch it further. To just clean the surface and remove the rust, instead, use Krud Kutter The Must for Rust. This product will not etch the surface but remove the rusting. For extra safety be sure to test the application in a small inconspicuous spot to ensure desired results. Read More

Answer: 
Maxwell, Krud Kutter Metal Clean and Etch has not been FDA approved for use on food preparation surfaces. However, if you choose to use it anyway, it will remove the rust from your metal grid plate. After use, be sure to thoroughly rinse the product off of the surface, and rinse again with soap and water. Following these steps will remove the remaining product from the surface.
