    Evapo-rust dried up into weird “cake”

    I’ve been doing my spring shop cleaning of all my old hand tools. I have a small pot of evapo-rust that I’ve been dunking screws and small parts in. I had a bunch the other day that I left to soak overnight. Next day I can’t explain it but all the liquid dried up into a rocky dirt like cake type matter. Seriously it was weird and it is taking a lot to clean off the parts now. It’s kinda soft in that I can crumble the free matter but whatever it is that is stuck to the parts takes a stiff screw driver to remove.

    anyone ever seen this cleaning old rusty parts?

    Never seen that. However, I usually cover the container when I'm soaking something in EvapoRust. When I pour it back into the container I add water to fill it up.

    I'll be interested to hear what others have to say about your 'cake".

    Go into the world and do well. But more importantly, go into the world and do good.
