How to Rust Proof

    • 1). Examine the object you want to rust-proof. Check to see if there are any dents or scratches that can be the starting point for rust.

    • 2). Scrub away any rust with a wire brush or fine grade sandpaper. Scrub until you get to the bare metal.

    • 3). Apply a rust-proof primer to the object with a paint brush. There are many rust-proof primers on the market made for a variety of materials such as metal. The rust-proofing provides a barrier to the moisture in the air that contributes to rusting.

    • 4). Apply touch-up paint, if needed, with a paint brush. Allow to dry completely.

    • 5). Apply a wax or an oil specially designed for the object. There are waxes and oils made for cars, boats, appliances and other items. Mineral oil is a good all-around lubricant. With some of these lubricants the oil or wax seeps into any porous materials and fills them in so moisture can't enter.
