directions before beginning your project. OXYSTRIP™
works best when directions are followed exactly. These 5
simple steps will lead to a newly restored and rust-free
1 – Preparation and Safety
appropriate place to clean your item. Keep in mind that
OXYSTRIP™ will bleach and stain concrete and other types
of flooring. Always wear latex gloves and eye protection
when using this product. Also use OXYSTRIP™ only in a
well-ventilated area. Wear old clothing that can be thrown
away if you spill OXYSTRIP™ on the clothing.
OXYSTRIP™ Tip #1:
Use a garbage bag or old
sheet that can be thrown away later, under your work area.
This will decrease the chances of discoloring or ruining
your work surface.
2 – Getting Ready
the work area has been prepped, gather the items that you
plan on cleaning with OXYSTRIP™.
3 - Application
small amount of OXYSTRIP™, apply to the places where
rust has developed (remember, a little goes a long way).
Using a scrubber or brillo pad, begin rubbing the rust away.
OXYSTRIP™ Tip #2:
If at first it seems as
though you are not making any progress – don’t worry.
OXYSTRIP™ is working. It may appear that nothing is
happening, but OXYSTRIP™ is penetrating and breaking
down the rusted areas. Allow it to sit for a several minutes. Repeat
Step 3. In some extreme cases, you may need to repeat Step 3
multiple times before results are obvious. The longer and
thicker the rust the more time it will take to penetrate and
break up the extensive rust deposits.
4 – Your Item After Application
you have finished removing the rust, it is important that
you clean the item thoroughly with soap and water.
OXYSTRIP™ is a potent rust eliminator. Be sure that you
rinse the item well so that all the cleaner you applied is
washed off. If the treated item is not completely clean,
OXYSTRIP™ will continue to work, possibly resulting in
damage of the remaining good parts of the item.
5 – Clean up
completing step four dispose of everything you used while
working with OXYSTRIP™, including the material you
used to protect your work surface, the latex gloves you
wore, and any cloths or scrubbers you used in the
application process. Also, clean any left over or spilled
OXYSTRIP™ and dispose of those rags or towels as well.
If you accidentally got a little bit of OXYSTRIP™ on
your work clothing, throw that away, too. Put all items into
a heavy-duty trash bag and tie it as tightly as possible to
make sure children and pets cannot get into it. Place sealed
bag in a trashcan and put the lid on firmly.
finished with the application, reseal your container of
OXYSTRIP™. Make sure that the outside of container is
clean and then store in cool environment away from any
children and pets.
OXYSTRIP™ tip #3:
When ready to
use OXYSTRIP™ again, shake sealed container well for
one minute prior to use.

of OXYSTRIP™ rust remover.
tests that were performed using OXYSTRIP™ showed that
in most instances there was a 100% change in appearance and
removal of rust. In a slight number of test cases, there
were a few spots that wouldn’t come completely free of all
rust deposits, due to the surface being eaten away from long
term exposure to rust.
