Removing Rust from Refrigerator


Hello: I am trying to find a way to clean rust from a refrigerator without harming the paint/finish. The only thing we use that removes the rust is an S.O.S pad,but this is starting to damage the paint.Any information is greatly appreciated.

We have a CitriSurf product which will do this very well without harming the paint. It is safe and easy to use, based on citric acid. Contact us if you are interested. Regards, Lee

Have you tried CLR [linked by editor to product info at Amazon] ? CLR stands for Calcium-Lime-Rust.. I'm not sure if this will harm your paint...if you are careful you should be able to avoid putting it on the paint.

CLR is good stuff!
