With so many household items in danger of experiencing rust and corrosion, here are just a few areas where Evapo-Rust can help repair the damage.
Hand Tools: Any carbon steel tool left exposed to moist air will rust over time. A good soaking in Evapo-Rust will restore appearance and function with trivial effort.
Stuck Bolts: Most nuts and bolts that seize over time stick due to corrosion. If the part is small enough to allow submersion in Evapo-Rust, removing the oxidation will typically free the bolt.

Gun Parts: Guns are notoriously susceptible to rust and neglect. A stroll around a typical gun show can turn up rusty guns in need of love that can be had for a song. A little Evapo-Rust can transform these hidden treasures from junk to art with surprisingly little effort.
Large Shop Tools: Large steel surfaces like the tables on a drill press or band saw rust readily in humid climates. Evapo-Rust on a shop rag will cut the rust and leave the surface fresh and smooth. Though Evapo-Rust is really designed to remove parts via immersion, I still found it to be a handy way to resurrect my rusty work tables.

Small Mechanical Parts: For the dedicated shop tinkerer committed to his craft, rusted gears and corroded widgets can be annoying at best. Now an overnight soak in Evapo-Rust chews away the scale to leave parts useful and resurrected with a minimum of fuss.
Auto Parts: Automobile service and restoration is inevitably at the mercy of rust and corrosion. Evapo-Rust takes all the heavy lifting out of cleaning and resurrecting tired car parts.
