Rust Remover Showdown. Will Evapo-Rust prevail?

  • Several tests in this video demonstrate the strengths and weaknesses of various store brand rust removal products (CLR, Krud Kutter, Evap-Rust, Loctite Naval Jelly), Muriatic Acid, as well as other options such as using vinegar or Coca Cola. More product details at the very bottom of the description. Which one works the best? After conducting the tests, I like Krud Cutter the best. However, other products, such as Evapo-Rust proved to be very effective as well. Loctite Naval Jelly would be my pick for a flat metal surface. I am not sponsored and I do not receive funding from any product manufacturer. I conduct independent testing. Finally, thank you very much for supporting the channel by watching the commercials and through Patreon support. This allows me to decline all sponsorship opportunities and remain unbiased, since I have nothing to sell nor do I have a corporate sponsor to please. Thanks again!

    Great video, but you forgot the greatest rust cleaner of them all...Oxalic acid, as in ON Off Hull cleaner.

    What would you recommend for a spray application on rusted vehicle parts? Many of us have vehicles with some rust from salt spray and wouldn't mind crawling underneath to give it a quick squirt but aren't too excited about taking everything apart to get at the rust. Given our laziness it would need to be paint safe. The naval jelly looked interesting as it seems like something that could be rubbed onto rusted parts and left to do its thing.

    Without a doubt my 100% go to is Metal Rescue. Best rust remover I've ever used. I buy the premixed. Its eco friendly and works fast.

    As a fan and user of Evapo-Rust I want to point out that it benefits greatly from just a bit of mechanical help. Just a kiss with a wire brush or scotchbrite pad will do a world of difference.

    My dad always used a green liquid called Ospho which is 45% phosphoric acid from Ace Hardware and is only $26.99/gal ($0.21/oz). Turns rust and ferrous metals black almost instantly. Wish you would have included this.

    you made a slight error using the coke.. your supposed to drink the coke which give you energy to use a wire brush.

    Vinegar works AMAZING, but it needs approximately 7 days to work. I rebuilt a rusty lawn tractor and put a couple jugs of vinegar in a pail, threw all the rusty bolts and brackets in there, left for 7 days, and the results were UNBELIEVABLE!! Not a spec of rust was left. Bolts all looked brand new.
    ALSO, had a rusty fuel tank on a generator, so I filled it with vinegar, sat for a week, and inside looked brand new when I drained it.
    The key to vinegar, it takes 7 days to work.

    I'm pretty sure Rust-Eze's would have won if it was given the chance.

    Not sure how regular vinegar and apple cider vinegar would compare. But, I've used apple cider vinegar for removing rust on a square fender Deere 110 garden tractor. Worked well. Used a toothbrush to help it along.

    I've used Pepsi to help remove aluminum rims off of a Mack truck before. Sprayed it in an old Windex bottle of squirted it where the rims made contact with the wheel hubs and studs. After 15mins of time, was able to Fina remove the stuck rims, with a few whacks from the sledge hammer. Pop also helps free stuck engines as well.

    Would the results improve if you circulated or agitated the fluid?
