If you need to know how to clean rusty tools, you’re in the right place! Jenolite is here to help you restore rusty tools to their former glory, keeping them rust-free forever!

Let’s face it, from the moment you buy a new tool, you know for a fact you’ll be putting it through its paces. Whether your tools help you to tackle the garden, refurbishments or general DIY, they’re the equipment we rely on to get jobs done indoors and out, even when they become tired and rusty.

Rusty tools are fine to use, but over time the rust can really prohibit their performance. Have you ever tried to use rusty pliers or a saw? The good news is that if your tools are rusty but made from steel or iron, Jenolite will obliterate the rust, and provide an added layer of protection against the rust returning.

So before you pack away those rusty tools for these colder months, why not give them some TLC, ready for your next gardening or DIY project?

Removing rust from tools - the steps to success:

Step 1: Choosing the right product for the job

If there are small areas of rust and corrosion on your tools, Jenolite Rust Remover Jelly is a concentrated non-drip gel that is quick and easy to use. It comes in a 40mg tube so is ideal for minor applications and removing small areas of rust. As well as being effective on rusty tools, it can also be used on a whole host of other steel or iron materials found around the home, through to cars, bikes, and motorbikes.

If you need a larger application and your tools have suffered a lot of rust and corrosion, Jenolite’s Liquid Rust Remover is your solution. It comes in a 5kg bottle and while it can be applied by brush, if your tools are made purely from steel or iron, you can also use it to immerse them in. Simply soak them and hey presto!

For seized tools such as pliers, you can use a Silicone Spray to loosen them up before working on removing the rust.

Unsure which to buy? If you’re looking for a reliable all-rounder, choose Jenolite’s thick liquid rust remover. This can be applied by brush or, again, placed in a container in which to immerse your steel tools. It’s also non-drip, meaning it’s perfect for use on vertical surfaces or anywhere you’ll be conscious of protecting surrounding softer materials, e.g. plastic handles.
