Home Improvements & Maintenance : How to Make a Rust Remover


Hi I’m Tim Gipson and I am going to talk to
you about how to make a rust remover. Now you can get commercial rust removers or chemical
rust removers at any hardware store or home improvement store but you know with concerns
about the environment these days it is very easy to make your own. What you’ll need is
you’ll need some lemon juice, some baking soda and if you don’t happen to have any lemon
juice then you can also substitute some vinegar. What we want to do is we want to take our
baking soda and put it in a little tub like this and we want to add just enough lemon
juice to make a paste. So we’ll just kind of add a little bit at a time and you get
a little fuzzing and foaming action there. So you get kind of a frothy kind of paste
here. So you make a paste and then you know if you have got some old drill bits or something
like that that have a little bit of rust in them then you can just put that drill bit
right in there and soak it in there and you want to leave it in there for a little bit
a while and you want to let that solution, and of course a little bit longer than what
I am just doing here but as you can see even with a short amount of time for that solution
you can see that it goes right to work and starts dissolving that rust. So if you have
some large surface areas you can actually just brush that on and take a brush and you
know just a regular old brush, brush it on the surface and let it dissolve and work on
that and then just wipe it down. That’s all there is to it to remove some rust. So I’m
Tim Gipson and that’s how to make your own rust remover.
