Instructions for Removing Rust

Rust, the ultimate symbol for degradation and aging. We’re here to tell you, rust does not mean metal is ruined. It just needs a little love and some paint.

We formulated Goo Gone Rust Remover to dissolve rust, leaving behind the original metal. It’s the perfect prep tool for painting steel, stainless steel and iron surfaces. Try it on tools, furniture, bikes and much, much more.

How to Remove Rust

Before Beginning:

  1. Remove oil and grease from the metal to be treated.
  2. Rinse the metal to break and wash away loose dirt.
  3. Apply the remover by brush, spray or dipping. Use plastic, glass or stainless steel containers.
  4. Disassemble units composed of removable parts before cleaning. Clean and allow to dry before reassembling.

Dissolving rust from iron or steel:
Apply the remover as required to penetrate rust. Cleaning time will vary according to the rust. Light rust will usually be dissolved in 15 minutes or less. Heavy rust will require up to 30 minutes and may require a second application.
