After time, especially in rough climates, rust appears on iron gates and fences. The raw metal is at the mercy of the elements when the paint chips. Thus, wind, rain and snow can create rust spots. This not only looks unappealing but also can weaken the integrity of the iron. Take action as soon as the rust begins to latch onto the iron gate. This is important so the gate does not fall apart and an expensive replacement occurs.
Add hot water to the spray bottle. Screw the sprayer on tightly.
Mist the rust with the water again. Wipe away rust particles with the first rag. Use the second rag when the first becomes too dirty to work with properly.
