Undoing the effects of Hurricane Sandy
I got hit pretty hard by Hurricane Sandy and the 10' storm surge resulted in about 3' of water in my auto shop. I have been taking all the tools in each drawer and letting them soak in the bucket and pulling them out after awhile and the tools all look much better than before the storm. Chrome finish looks good on tools, can see where rust got deeper on others. Wrenches I could not open or close work like new after soaking. Make sure you clean grease off first, and like the other post says the finish on some tools can be a form of rust and the blacking on my reciprocating impact gun tips came off, but better than the red rust.

Works as described!
Does the job! Just soak it and wait a day or 2 depending on how rusty it is and it removes just the rust. Easy clean up!

Bought 5 gallons of this a couple of years ago to remove rust from an old machine tool. It works every bit as well as they say. I keep the 5 gallon bucket handy and when I find a part or tool with rust, I just drop it in the bucket. When new, it only takes a hour to remove the rust, but you can leave it in for a month or more without damage. After 2 years of using the same 5 gallons, it is starting to take longer to remove the rust, so I am here to get another bucket.
One caution. You can remove rust from "blacked" or "blued" items, but since these finishes are really a type of rust, it will strip the blacking or bluing off. Ok if that is what you want, or the item has rusted in spite of the blacking.

Evapo Rust works Great!!1
Awesome product, I have been using it for a few years now to remove rust from a 1970 Honda CB 350 that I rescued out of the ground. most of the parts were rusted badly, but a few days in of submersion and they look like they just came out of the factory.

Absolutely Amazing !!
I was skeptical about how well Evapo-Rust would work but I had a BMW differential that was going to be scrapped due to the extreme rust on the outside surface and thought it was worth a shot. I submerged the diff housing in the liquid and forgot about it. 7 days later I remembered it and removed the diff housing. I was amazed !! It had completely "eaten" the rust from the housing and it looked like brand new cast iron !! I have since used it to restore brake calipers, steering knuckles, and other rusty components with awesome results !
Great product that does way more than it says it will do !

I wasn't sure of how this product would work since it is enviromentally friendly. I have found that may products that are enviromentally friendly do not have the power to do the job. That is not the case with this product. Evapo- Rust does the job. I had a heat transfer module that was rusted very badly. I took a five gallon bucket of evapo rust and immersed the heat exchanger in the solution. Within in one day the solution had turned completely black and 99% of the rust was removed from the exchanger. I did have to order another 5 gallon bucket to finish the job but considering having to buy a new heat exchanger that was a steal of a deal. I would recommend this product to anyone who needs to get rust off fast......
