Any of the Servisol products are suitable. They have lots of specialist products for tackling this kind of problem. You can get them from places such as Maplin (UK) or Radio Shack (USA). Also on-line at Amazon and E-Bay - just search for Servisol.

SOURCE: what is the best way

Use common sense when cleaning. Don' t use water. Instead I find Windex works well. Just spray enough to loosen up any dirt/grime build up. DO NOT OVERSOAK. And just wipe clean. There really is no real trick to cleaning these things.

Get yourself some cotton swabs, a can of air, and paper towels, and your all set.

How can I help clean the rust from the bottom of my ford windstar 2003?


Scrape off the rust, using a wire brush or scrubbing pad. This technique removes small rust. GM MDI
Apply a rust remover, using a steel wool pad or paper towel. Rub the rust remover into the rust.
Wait 10 minutes for the rust remover to work. Most rust removers contain hydrochloric acid, oxalic acid or other strong acids that dissolve rust.
Clean away the rust remover and the rust with paper towels. Dampen a paper towel, and wipe the areas, again.
Paint on a primer with a paint brush. Let the primer dry. The automotive primers offer protection against rust.
Use touch-up paint that is the same color as the Ford Galaxie. Apply it to all areas that are missing paint. Let the paint dry, before driving the car.

Black (rust colour) stains in the carafe


The fact that is is a stainless steel container makes it highly unlikely that it is rust. You should never drink out of a rust container. I would suggest a highly caustic but non-toxic cleaning agent. I'd start with vinegar or lemon juice. If you can get your hand in there, let it sit for a while and give it a scrub. Steel wool would definitely get the nasty stuff off but may also compromise any type of protective coating so inspect the metal to see if it has any type of coating over it (like an enamel glaze) should be bare stainless though.

I just inherited a Rigid TP3100 surface planer. Vertical guiding rods have some rust & I can only get a small height adjustment. I just put a little penetrating oil where the rods enter 'sliding...


I can't find a Ridgid TP3100 planer but there is a TP1300 but the fix is the same. Your best bet to remove the rust is to completely remove the rods and clean them with rifle bore cleaner (RBC), steel wool and a lot of elbow grease. You'll have to rub them until all the rust is gone and they're shiney and smooth again. Also check the upper head where the rods slide through to make sure they are clean. An alternative is to replace the rods, they run about $14 each, Ridgid part number 827718.

Fryers use 2 types of stainless steel. Get a magnet and see if it sticks to the inside of the tank. If so...that is a lower grade of stainless. Use some steel wool to clean the rust spots and cover with vegetable oil. The tanks should be ok if you just bought them.

Rheem 21V40-38 gas pilot will light, but the burner will not come on.


As long as you have a good strong pilot flame under thermocouple in the first place, try this. Shut gas valve off, and clean thermocouple above pilot flame. Best way is to remove it, and clean it with fine steel wool, or fine emery cloth, at both the probe end that sits over pilot flame, as well as undo it from gas valve and rub contact surface on other end with steel wool as well, and if you have any electrical cleaner, give it a squirt in spot where thermocouple was removed from, and clean it out well, and if no electrical cleaner, roll a piece of steel wool up small enough to get it in that hole and twist it on the surface where thermocouple meets, to clean the surface . If that works, great, if not, either thermocouple is defective, or bad gas valve.

Motorbike sitting in shed unused for a year. Chrome has little rust spots all over. How may I get the rust spots off without damaging the chrome? I live within about one kilometre of the ocean and at times...


you'll need some steel wool, use fine if the rust is not bad. No need to scratch the metal too hard for nothing.
Second you'll need some metal polish to lubricate, and polish while you rub with the steel wool. Liquid polish works better..
you'll need a clean rag to buff out everything after you've removed the rust.

Rub the metal-polish-loaded steel wool on the part until you see the brown rust pits vanish. Don't do a circular motion, go in a back-and-forth motion instead to match the length of the part. Circular scratches will show even if they are very small.
Once you've made all the rusty spots go away, take your polishing rag, a clean cotton t-shirt can do the job, and buff the piece until you are happy with the result.
You can always finish with a regular application of metal polish without the steel wool after you're done.

Rust stains appeared all over the outside of the stainless steel front of over, air outlet and splash back. What would have caused this and how can we fix this problem?


If I understand your question, your stainless steel surfaces have rusted. Correct?
Contrary to popular belief, stainless steel CAN rust under the right circumstances.

I won't go into what may have caused this problem, but I will hopefully help you solve it and prevent future rusting.

Usually it is only surface rust and not deep pitting of the steel.
Surface rust can usually be removed with a product like Soft Scrub cleanser or liquid Meguiar's Car Cleaner Wax.

Apply a small amount of either product to a clean cloth and rub over the rust until it is removed.
Wait until the product dries and buff with a clean cloth.
If you have a brushed stainless steel surface, you will want to rub in the same direction of the "grain".

One benefit of the wax is that it will protect the surface from future rusting.
If the rust cannot be removed in this manner, a more aggressive approach is required. Do NOT use the following procedure if you have a smooth stainless steel surface, only if you have the brushed surface..

Use a non-metallic scuff pad, such as a 3M Green Scouring Pad and rub in the direction of the brushed stainless steel grain.
This process should remove all surface rust and even some minor scratches. You can use the pad dry or better yet, with a liquid wax as a lubricant.

Never use steel wool!
It will only leave small particles of steel imbedded in the surface. The condition will look worse when the particles themselves rust!

I cannot be held responsible for any damages that may occur from the above procedure. But, it has worked fine for me whenever I have implimented it on dozens of similar surfaces.

Good Luck!
