Rust removal

Post by Rmilytaxm » Wed Sep 18, 2019 9:39 am

Can anyone recommend something to remove rust on a chrome heated towel rail? I am using a combination of brillo pad, peek, astonish, and some bicarbonate of soda abrasive cleaner.
Is there anything to get rid of it quickly?

If that didn’t work, use some STAINLESS STEEL wool. Stainless won’t scratch the chrome, but will remove the rust.

DO NOT use regular steel wool as it WILL scratch.

Or you can wipe it with Evapo-Rust to remove light rust.
If my short term memory gets any shorter, I won’t even have thought about what I’m going to forget.

I have used Brillo or SOS pads to remove rust from chrome for 60 years, works great for me and is quick. You are using the Brillo pads with water aren't you? Don't know how you could get much quicker. JMHO Dave
