A cheap cleaner used for rusted tools would be apple vinegar from the $1 store - one gallon cost $1 & takes most of the rust off - a little elbow grease with a pad will take off the other 10%... It is toxic free...

Cool. Exactly what i needed. I need to remove some rust from tools. I have some solution that removes rust.

Great job! Can't wait to make one. Oh, how I miss Tim Horton's. *sigh* Get my fix when visiting family in Canada.

I also miss Harvey's hamburgers and the Poutine...

I use Dawn dishsoap & water for parts cleaning & heavy grease removal. Almost any brand of dishsoap will do the job becxause they are formulated to cut grease (doesn't matter if it's petroleum based or from cooking). For small parts, use plastic storage containers with snap on lids from garage or yard sales cheap & when they wear out or start leaking, use them to store those small nuts, bolts or screws that have accumulated in the bottom of your workbench drawers!

I found two web sites that claim to be the home of Evaporust. Do you happen to know which is the genuine article?

for rust removal, instead of special solutions, you can also use 10% citric acid (by weight) mixed with regular tap water, works better if it is warmed up a little bit (40 degrees C)
