How to Remove Rust from Tools
If you have tools that have begun to rust, NOW is the time to address the problem. Rusting is a progressive process that can eventually cause serious damage to your expensive tools. The iron compounds contained in most metals are the source of rust and most tools are made from iron-containing metals. When iron is exposed to moisture and oxygen, the process of oxidation – or rusting – begins. And it will literally eat away at your tools.
RustAid Outdoor Rust Remover will safely dissolve rust stains on contact, with no harmful fumes. RustAid will take rust off small and large implements including:
- Trowels and other garden hand tools
- Garden pruners, loppers, hedge trimmers
- Shovels, rakes, hoes

- Saws, knives, scissors, axes, hatchets
- Mower blades
- Equipment parts
- And much much more!
Directions for Removing Rust From Tools
- Apply Rust Aid Outdoor
- Wait a few minutes as calcium, lime and rust dissolves right before your eyes and vanishes
- Rinse if appropriate
If you don’t address rust problems immediately, you are compromising the life and effectiveness of your tools and equipment. Starting with minor discoloration, progressing to pitting (small rusty divots in the surface) at its worst, as the process of oxidation continues, it can cause jamming, malfunction, or breakage.
Always bring your tools in from the outdoor to protect them from weather and the moisture inherent in soil and organic matter. Clean tools after use. Any matter left on them – including dirt, moisture, sawdust, etc. – is a perfect breeding ground for rust. Be sure to wipe them dry.
Storing tools in sheds, carports, garages and basements is practical, but may also leave tools more vulnerable as many storage environments are high in humidity, depending on your climate. Rust shows where moisture goes! If your storage area is often damp, try a moisture absorbing product for protection. DampRid Moisture Absorber is a safe, economical way to reduce moisture levels in storage areas, garages, sheds and basements.
RustAid is a safe, effective, economical way to remove rust on tools and keep them in good shape for long life. Go after the rust before rust goes after your tools!
