WOW.....
I left my toolbox open in the rain awhile back and they's rust everywhere. I'll let ya know how they come out. I presume it's ok to soak them in the stuff??

Rod says that you can't leave it on for long period of time, just a few minutes then rinse it off or it will eat the metal. He uses this to take rust stains out of concrete. He has used it on metal and watched it carefully, and in short durations. Also WEAR GLOVES so it doesn't eat YOU.

p.s. watch out for the tidy bowl man......:D

Rick,
I'll make sure to tell him.
Glad it worked for you.
I have to admit, I thought it was both funny and just too easy to work when he told me too, but it made sense. He took rust stains off of our front porch I had been grumbling about, and I just walked back into the house, smiling and shaking my head.

Honestly I pressured washed first ( it didnt budge) afterwords I applied the Lysal ,I waited for about an hour,there wasnt any color change I thought I had fallen for a practical joke,after uttering several choice words,and with itchey hands( gloves Rick,gloves,gloves!!) I started pressure washing again, the rust stain came off way too easy!!!!!Rick sorry for doughting

He uses it full strength, and carefully. Applying in short durations, kind like when you wash your hair...lather rinse repeat.
