Rust is the number one thing that destroys metals. It makes metal furniture, tools and equipment degrade much faster and lose their function. There is something you can do about it- use electrolytes. Electrolysis is a pretty simple method of removing the surface rust so you can restore some priceless items instead of throwing them away.
You can use this method as part of maintenance work on various tools and some equipment’s parts. By using electrolytes, you can remove the rust but not abrade or remove any of the metal.
