Does anyone have any ideas on how to remove the rust from this kettler garden furniture? I have used brillo pads and various methods which seems to remove the rust on the top surface but because it's mesh I can't seem to find a good way to get in between.

    5 second internet search for rust remover, shows many products. Top for me would be naval jelly.

    Or just use paint designed for this scenario. Related: diy.stackexchange.com/questions/8065/…

  • Wasn't sure rust remover would get in the gaps, thanks. Will also look into the paint!

  • Yeah, except this is actually a pretty hard problem. You'll find a year down the road that random hardware store cruft is well-marketed, but not really up to the task. May 28, 2020 at 16:37
  • sandblasting is the most effective. you also might be able to power-wash enough of it off to get a good coat of paint on clean metal.
