I was worried that the cost and being more friendly to environment, that it may not be as effective as I would like. I have an old rusty telescope I am restoring. It had a large gear 10" across with hundreds of heavily rusted teeth. I left it in a bath of evaporust for four days to be sure I gave it full opportunity to do its stuff. I pulled the gear out and the rust was " Completely" gone. I was amazed and recommended it to others who also work on antique large scopes. Love it!

Evapo Rust is a great way to remove rust from metal parts. It looks like water but when tou place rusted metal parts in it and leave in for a few hours depending on size, it will remove most if nit all of the rust. You can also teuse it by pouring it nack into the container eith a funnel through a towell as a filter. The smell is not too strong either. It sure beats sanding, ir irher chemucaks ive tried.

I watched this product used in a YouTube video and thought "Is it really that good?" So I bought a gallon to try it and and my reaction was "WOW, It is that good at removing rust. Just submerge an rusty object into a pan or can of Vaporust and let it soak. It does all of the work of rust removal for you. Just pull the object out and rinse it off with water, wipe it dry and you're done. Soak time varies on the amount of rust. I let a really rusty old axe head soak for 12 hours. It came out clean. I even put an old hatchet in and I could see that it was painted blue at one time. It came out rust free and the remaining paint was unaffected. This product will remove the brown patina on metal, so if you like the old patina don't use this as it will come out back to bare metal. Incredible product and environmentally friendly. I highly recommend it.
