Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 9reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good on Surface Rust This product worked well on surface rust on several tools, but not as well on deeper, pitted rust. I removed loose rust first with a wire brush under running water, and cleaned the items with a degreaser. The WD-40 Rust Soak removed most if the remaining surface rust fairly quickly. Pitted rust remained, despite periodically checking and rinsing the parts. Eventually, the solution turned black and stained my parts black. Reps said I 'overexposed' them, but I was just trying to get off remaking rust. July 21, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Doesn't last nearly as long as others and $ more. Paid more for this than what I've been using because of the name. It turned black and quit working after the first part. Not happy. April 16, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Does not work I used this product to remove some surface rust from a motorcycle gas tank. I left the product in the tank for 4 days, rotating the tank 1/4 turn every 24 hours. Wheb I emptied the solution, the rust was still there. It did not appear that the product did anything. January 24, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Couldn't ask for an easier job! Started collecting old antique barn lamps. Try removing rust from all of the small parts by hand. Tried WD-40 rust remover soak. I was simply amazed by the outcome of this product. It allowed me to use my time doing other things while it did it's job. I will be using the product again and will be recommending it to others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Really Works I saw "Rust Remove Soak" on the DIY network show and since my basement received 5 feet of water from Hurricane Sandy everything was soaked in salt water. It took about 8 days to pump and dry out the basement before I could get to work on my tools which were completely rust by then. This product WORKED after washing of the product with a brush and water my chrome plated tools are as bright as the day I bought them, The tools that were not plated have no rust any more.   January 3, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Soak it, and Restore it! Ease of use is the first thing i noticed, simply simple! Wanted to rid the rust off several vintage tools and was surprised at how easy it was. After submerging vintage pliers and lug wrench into glass container filled with WD-40 Rust Remover Soak, i could watch the magic happen. Let soak for 8 hrs, removed, wiped them clean and they looked GREAT! Thanks for such an easy and effective product. December 25, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by WD-40 Specialist Rust Remover Soak Works! This product is amazing. Worked superb on my rusty old sledge hammer that I used back in the1970's. It soaked that rusty old hammer head and overnight and transformed it into a new looking hammerhead. As I dropped the hammerhead into the solution I could see it instantly go to work and particles of rust began floating away from the metal. This is an incredible rust removing product. Doesn't get any easier than this. Way to go WD-40! December 17, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by This stuff really works! Used WD40 Rust Remover Soak on an old very rusted adjustable wrench and a pliers, both of which barely worked. A 24 hour soak cleaned them both, even to the teeth on each. No odors, no effect to skin, just great results and I stored the used portion for later re-use! December 12, 2012
