How to remove rust stains from stainless steel (video)

Remove rust from stainless steel with Benz Oxy Cleanze

In this short video Ben demonstrates the treatment of a stainless steel door handle to remove rust stains – caused by the stainless steel being contaminated with carbon steel –by applying Benz Oxy Cleanze.


Quick tip 1:
It may seem strange to have to treat "stainless" steel for rust. This is because some stainless steel can be contaminated by carbon/mild steel. In the case of the stainless steel in the video it is probably 304, which by the sea is not a great idea. The manufacturer would have done better to use 316 or A4 grade stainless.

Quick tip 2: To find out how long rusted metal treated with Oxy Cleanze would remain free from rust following a treatment, we treated some rusty cast-iron downpipes and left them unpainted and exposed to the elements.

They remained clear of rust even several months later. (normally we would have painted them with a rust-protection paint, such as smooth Hammerite, following a treatment with Oxy Cleanze)

Quick tip 3: When using Oxy Cleanze always protect the surrounding surfaces and wear suitable PPE.
