Oxalic acid is the best. That's what FSR and Barkeepers Friend are. Barkeepers friend is cheap and very good. I keep a couple of cans on my boat. I used to use oxalic acid (Home depot ) crystals but you have to make a saturated solution and then dilute it. Too much work. FSR and WM's knockoff are too expensive. Barkeepers Friend $1.74 at Walmart. I'm going to try Spotless Stainless soon. I'll use it on shackles and other stainless that have crevices and hard to get spots.

I got some Stainless Steel Pickeling Paste from a friend and it took away the worst rust stains I had in literally 10 seconds. It is a blue gel that you just paint on - hose it off and the SS looks brand new. Too easy. Gloves and masks are a must though.

Spotless Stainless Rust Remover and Protector..

Hi,

Spotless Stainless Stainless Steel Rust Remover and Protector is a new product that removes rust and the "free iron" that causes rust and enables a rich chromium surface on Stainless Steel which reacts with oxygen in the air to form a tough protective oxide layer. This oxide layer protects Stainless Steel and will extend the time between cleaning. It is environmentally friendly and will not harm humans, marine life, fiberglass, wood, aluminum, most materials..

No rubbing, no scrubbing, no polishing.. You brush it on. Great for hard to reach places.



You can check out the reviews and examples at Home - Spotless Stainless Removes Rust, Protects Stainless Steel

Disclosure - I am affiliated with Spotless Stainless..

cheers

Most rust removers are acids; oxalic, phosphoric, Muriatic acid (HCl), etc.. The other choice is an abrasive polish, flitz work quite well.
