WD-40 Specialist® Rust Remover Soak

1 gallon jug

A rust removing soak that safely removes tough rust from metal parts and tools.

WD-40 Specialist® Rust Remover Soak quickly dissolves rust and restores tools, equipment, and surfaces to bare metal without chipping, scraping or scrubbing. Great for removing rust from tools, metal, cast iron, chrome parts, and more without harming paint, gaskets, trim, or other surrounding parts. This rust-removal formula has no toxic fumes, does not use acids or caustic chemicals, is non-irritating to skin,  and is safe to use on most metals. To remove light rust, leave parts in the solution for 1-3 hours. To remove heavy rust, leave parts in the rust removal solution overnight. Do not use on parts that have bluing, browning or protective oxide paints, as those protective coatings would be removed.

  • Ideal for use on auto restoration, tractors, antiques, farm equipment & implements, trailers & hitches, and rusty tools
  • Non-Irritating to Skin
  • No Toxic Fumes and Acid Free
  • NSF Category P1 (#146753)

Can it be used to clean rusty firebox

I have indoor multi fuel burner in the house, otherwise known as firebox. It has started to get very rusty in some places due to cats urinate on it. Can I use wd40 to clean the rust or will it compromise the safety of burner hearing . Thanks


Great Product!!

I hand some hand tools that had gotten wet without me knowing. Needless to say that had rusted. I bought a gallon of the Rust Remover Soak and placed the tools in a container with the soak. Within 24 hours it was hard to believe, but the rust was gone!! I love this product. The tools looked new again.


Question: WIll this work on Stainless Steel?

I need a safe product that I can use on my sailboat's stainless steel parts that have stared to rust. My husband always uses WD-40 on his tractors, cars etc.... I need a good product I can use to assist in removing rust.... I will gladly review once I complete my project. If it works as I need it to I would rate it at maximum !!!!


Amazing Results

I use this product on a number of old tools and few 40 year old C-Clamps. Soaked the for a little over 24 hours due to the extensive rust. They came out like new.


Under promise and over deliver

I have been hanging onto my grandpas old hand tools. I haven't used them due to the excessive rust and I haven't had the time to scrub or scrape. Saw this product and thought I'd give it a try. 40+ year old rusty tools now blend in with my brand new tools. It's unreal how well this product works overnight with no work by me. It's a safe product and biodegradable. No voc is also ideal. This product is one of those that under promises and over delivers.


Works Great

I had some tools that got really wet and needed to be thrown away. I saw an ad about the WD 40 rust soak and thought that I would give it a try. I had to saok some of it for 24 hours and some others for 48 hours, but it removed ALL the rust and the tools are as good as new. Best $20.00 I ever spent.


Extremely disappointed!

I was extremely on your rust remover product considering I'm a big of all your other products! This rust remover was a complete waste of money and time it did not perform to your specification! I had initially used EVAPO-Rust overnight but I couldn't submerge the parts all the way. So I had some rust on some areas. I was unable to get some more of it but I did find your WD40 RUST REMOVER.I have photos but I was unable to upload photos


Rust Eater

Looks like water, no smell, not impressive out of the can. Just wait until you see what it does ! Like watching water boil, you don't really see it in action, just the results, and they are fantastic. Bought this heavy rusted vise at a yard sell. Look at it after 24 hours in dip. Too large to get it all in at once, so I'm flipping it each morning.


what's up this is awesoe

i love this even now i didn't use it



Hi, can I buy this product in Russia? Thanks, Vladimir
