Everyone from the professional to the DIY home handyperson has come across rusty tools. Tools can become so rusty that they seem entirely unusable. But before you throw them away, know that you can make them work (and look) like new by applying a little CLR.
Step 1: Create a mixture of half CLR solution and half warm water into a plastic container.
Step 2: Soak the tools where possible into the solution, otherwise apply CLR using a sponge or brush.
Step 3: Allow CLR to sit for 2 – 3 minutes
Step 4: Rinse thoroughly with clean water.
