Vinegar is amazing shit... Every other home remedy contains vinegar. Everything from scrubbing hardwood floors to mold remediation. Diets, voice meds, concrete, tile and brick scrub, Metal prep for painting (particularly galvanized). Neutralizer for smells. The list goes on forever.

I'm going to give this a try. My tools I have now are pretty much always covered in oil or grease, so I don't have much to worry about. These ones I got, there's 3-4 of each size in some cases, and they were just dumped in this chest. I was just going to coat them and toss them into normal rotation to break them in. Ha-ha!

Yep, Evaporators-Rust for the win!

And it works even better in a sonic cleaner. Only takes minutes instead of hours to take the rust off.

This is the barrel of my Uncles 1967 BSA Martini International that got wet from a ceiling leak in the back of his closet. I stuck it in a bucket of Evapo-rust for 3 days and it come out perfect, other than needing to be re-blued.

Didn't think to take afters until it had already left to go get re-blued in NC.

Evapo-Rust + HFs ultrasonic cleaner (with its heater turned on) = the bomb.

Rusty and dirty injectors to clean like new in as little as 3 minutes.
