I was sent a sample of Metal Rescue® water-based rust remover and Dry Coat™ rust preventative. All opinions are mine.

Who knew pool chlorine turns metal tools to rust! Not these folks apparently. So much for remembering high school chemistry class.

Unwilling to toss anything out, my resident handy man has lugged these rusty tools from house to house. Good thing, because years after the old shed incident, he was redeemed in his holding onto his box of rusty tools. Here’s how he brought them back to Weekend Warrior use!
