Cool idea… but I don’t like mixing the used liquid back in with the fresh stuff, so I usually just keep a separate container for each. BTW, an old 1 gallon paint can works great – and with a hardware cloth basket, makes dipping small parts easy. Put the lid on it when not in use.

Cheers,
Brad

That’s a great idea Brad.
I’ll have to remember that.

Brilliant. I have one of those, not being used. Glad I saved it!

That’s good advice Brad, thank you.
Is it true that the used up Evaporust can be safely poured down the drain?
I’m still on my original jug but it’s just about shot.

They say it depends on the iron content… from the FAQ:

How do I dispose of the spent solution?
When EVAPO-RUST® is spent, only the iron content of the solution will dictate how it can be disposed of. In most cases it can be dumped into the city sewer.

The stuff is about as safe as it gets – it’s water soluble, PH neutral, biodegradable, non-toxic, non-corrosive, non-flammable, and contains no acids, bases, or solvents. You could probably drink the stuff without any ill effects :) So really, it’s just whatever you are adding (via rust removal) that would matter. For me, I don’t have city sewer, so I typically just dump it out in the woods.

Cheers,
Brad

A few different lengths of 4” PVC with caps on one end work well for plane parts and longer stuff.

Have your say...
