About This Product

WD-40 Specialist Rust Remover Soak quickly dissolves rust and restores tools, equipment, and surfaces to bare metal without chipping, scraping or scrubbing. Great for removing rust from tools, metal, cast iron, chrome parts, and more without harming paint, gaskets, trim, or other surrounding parts. This rust-removal formula has no toxic fumes, does not use acids or caustic chemicals, is non-irritating to skin, and is safe to use on most metals. To remove light rust, leave parts in the solution for 1-3 hours. To remove heavy rust, leave parts in the rust removal solution overnight. Do not use on parts that have bluing, browning or protective oxide paints, as those protective coatings would be removed.

  • Safe on steel and aluminum**
  • Ideal for use on auto restoration, tractors, antiques, farm equipment & implements, trailers & hitches, and rusty tools

Q:Can this be used on a car chassis to remove rust
by|May 14, 2024
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Hi, thanks for your question. The Rust Remover soak formula works very well on parts that can be submerged in the formula for 3 hours or more. If you can disassemble parts of your car chassis and place them in a container with the liquid it would be highly useful for removing rust. Thanks for choosing WD-40 Brand Products.

    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  Hi, thanks for your question. WD-40 Specialist Rust Remover Soak is intended for use on metal parts affected by rust. The formula does not break down plastic parts or components, it works by releasing the molecules forming the rust on the metal. Plastic tubs are not harmed. Thanks for choosing WD-40 Brand products.

      Q:How well does it work for removing rust from concrete? What are the directions to remove rust from concrete?
      by|Nov 18, 2023
      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  Hi, thanks for your question. This product works with items that can be submerged in the liquid for at least 2-3 hours, or longer for heavier rust coverage. It will not function properly by pouring the product onto concrete. Depending on the amount of rust involved, the Original WD-40 Formula can help to restore items or areas affected by rust. Spray and abrade the area with a rag, wire brush, steel wool, or whatever makes sense for the application. Thanks for choosing WD-40 Brand Products.

        Q:Is this safe to use on the chrome legs of my Nana's 1950s kitchen table and chairs?
        by|Sep 23, 2023
        1 Answer
        Answer This Question

        A:  Hi, thanks for your question. Yes, the chemical process removes iron oxide and does not interact with chrome coatings. That said, the rust damage will show and our Rust Remover Soak does not itself repair the item. Thanks for choosing WD-40 Brand Products.

          It works!!
          I soak my old parts on my 1971 Chevelle wagon and they come off with a lot of ease now. Parts are salvageable for use by other owners.

            Looks like water, no smell, not impressive out of the can. Just wait until you see what it does ! Like watching water boil, you don't really see it in action, just the results, and they are fantastic. Bought this heavy rusted vise at a yard sell. Look at it after 24 hours in dip. Too large to get it all in at once, so I'm flipping it each morning.
