"Removing rust on stainless steel"



2001

I am wondering if anyone knows what the easiest yet fastest way to remove rust off vault stainless steel safe deposit box lids would be?

Thanx.

Try dissolving citric acid crystals (available in most health food store additives section) in hot water, then using gloves to wipe the mix onto your surface liberally. Keep the solution hot. A good test to see if your mix is acidic enough, is to dip a penny into it and it should instantly become corrosion free. Then rinse the steel with cool distilled water. This should "passivate" your stainless steel to inhibit your rust problem.

For removing rust from stainless steel, you can use pickling gel which are very easy to apply on any surface ( even vertical SS surface ) and keep there for some 10 - 20 min. or even less depending on initial condition of surface. And then wash with water. You will totally get rid of rust, scales, discoloration, corrosion spots , annealing black scale etc. from the surface without wire brushing or grinding process.

Hope this will answer to your problem.
