rust chemicals compared, phosphoric acid vs deoxidene vs vinegar vs mag wheel cleaner
One piece of sheet metal with fresh surface rust is cut up to be treated with a range of chemicals. The rust is treated with five minutes of scrubbing with a fibre brush. chemicals used are white vinegar, Deoxidene containing phosphoric acid, and mag wheel cleaner. I also performed the five minute brush scrub with water so we could see how much the chemical enhances the rust removal.
