1) Before soaking, remove as much dirt and loose debris as possible from the item to be treated. Remove oils and greases with a detergent or degreaser before using this product to improve the rust removal effectiveness.
2) Pour the rust remover soak into a container so that the object being treated is completely submerged. This product is ready-to-use and requires no dilution.
3) Leave the item in the solution for at least 30 minutes to remove light rust, overnight (8 hours) for medium rust, and up to 24 hours for heavily rusted items.
4) Remove the item from the solution and rinse with water and dry completely. If rust remains in the metal "pits," soak again and rinse to remove.
To prevent flash rust, spray the surface with WD-40 multi-use product. For long-lasting rust protection, spray with WD-40 specialist long-term corrosion inhibitor.
WD-40 Specialist rust remover soak can be re-used. The more you de-rust, the darker the solution becomes. The solution is spent when it turns black and no longer performs. Do not pour the used solution back into fresh product in the original container.
Disposal: this water-based formula is extremely safe, non-toxic, VOC-free, and all ingredients are biodegradable. When used, the rust bonds to the solution and the iron becomes part of the used solution. Check with your local water treatment facility and dispose of according to local, state, and federal guidelines.
Use at room temperature or higher for maximum effectiveness.
Solution works best above 68 degrees F. The speed and effectiveness is significantly reduced below 60 degrees F.
