  • Bar rust

    How do you guys get rid of it? My bar has few rusted spots so I wanted to give her a treatment

    Scrub it down with a nylon brush. Do not use a wirebrush of any kind to knock the rust off as that will only make it rust faster after you clean. The key after this is to go buy some 3-in-1 Oil, and apply it to the bar with a lint-free cloth every so often.

        Spray Phosphoric Acid. It will convert the red rust to black and black rust will protect the surface from further rusting. Will also give the bar a black patina.
        WD-40 is another idea.

          Citric Acid Powder and water will do wanders for a rusty barbell. Just don't try to spray paint it chrome after thinking it will look pretty forever and ever **hangs head in shame** ya I tried it, still get paint on my hands when I dead lift, sigh.... seriously though citric acid works amazing and super easy!!

          Good luck!!
