Rust Removal at Home
Rusting is a typical problem among car owners. It’s a result of moisture and oxygen mixed up with metal. It usually starts with a simple dent. The owner will be surprised when the dent will turn into rust which will happen if the paint is accidentally removed. Though there are lots of commercial rust removers that promises effectivity, they contain toxins. Why don’t you opt for a safer way to remove the rust stains on your car?
The Use Of Force
One of the first things to do is to scrape it off using steel wool. The substances from the steel wool will do the magic regarding removing the rusted surface. You can also add some mineral oil to let the rust off on its own. You can just let it sit for a while before you scrub it with steel wool. You can sand off the rust using sandpaper or a sanding machine.
Lemon Juice and Salt
Do you know that lemon juice can also help in removing stains and rusts? The citric acid in the lemon juice helps in warding off the rust stains. A lot of commercial rust removers contain oxalic acid, thought the acid in the lemon juice is mild compared to the commercial ones in the market. You can mix the lemon juice with some salt. Apply some on the rusted part of the car and let it stay there for a few minutes. You can scrub it later on.
Vinegar is a useful tool at home, but not everyone knows that it is also a powerful tool that can help in removing rust. Putting it on a spray bottle and then spray a liberal amount on the affected area can help in removing the rust stain. The rust might be removed completely, but you can repeat the process over again to get rid of the remaining ones.
