I thought i would do a quick shoot out for rust removal when scrubbing for light removal. This seems to be a topic with some wildly different views. The most common products we use for this tends to be windex, wd-40, penetrating oil, and simple green…so i wanted to show what the differences are.  I’ve added some videos as well.  *Please note i mixed up the order on the penetrating oil and simple green*
