How can I clean rust off of a fence?
Question:I have a fence with some rust on it, does anyone know of any household tips that could halp remove it?? And no I am not getting a new fence.
Get a wire brush and rub off what you can. Then get some Rustoleum paint in silver and repaint it.
CLR or Lyme away. THey take care of rust, or just sand it down. And paint the darn thing!
Use the soft drink coke, and some steel wool.
What material is the fence? Is it a wrought iron fence, a wood fence with rust stains from hinges.?
For a wood fence, I would sand the stained area and wash w/ ammonia/water mixture. I would then prime the area with Kilz and repaint.
If it is a metal fence, make sure the rust isn't actually cancer. Cancer is where the fence is rusting from the inside out. If this is the case, want to or not, you're getting a new fence. Or at least replacing the rusted sections. If it is not cancer, scrub it with an steel brush, then sand with a medium grit sandpaper, then prime with Kilz, then paint with the paint of your choice.
The steel brushing and sanding will remove the surface rust, and provided that's all you have the repainting will seal and help deter future rusting.
Buy a can or cans of ZUD, which is a powdered cleanser that removes rust. Make a paste of ZUD & water & scrub it off your fence, using a Scotch Brite pad, rag, or small brush. It's a great household cleanser. I always have a can on hand. They sell it where the Comet & other powdered cleansers are sold. Good luck!!
I would use RustBlast by KBS Coatings. It works great at getting rid of the rust.
