How to Remove Rust from a Driveway

  • Transcript

    LESLIE: Pat in South Carolina needs some help cleaning the driveway. What can we do for you today?

    PAT: We have a truck that sits in the driveway and there’s rust when it rains. The rust drips on some certain parts underneath, onto the driveway.

    TOM: OK.

    PAT: And we tried different things to get it off but nothing has helped so far and we were wondering if you had any ideas.

    TOM: Have you tried TSP – trisodium phosphate? It’s available in the paint aisle of home centers and hardware stores. Works really well. You mix it up into a bit like a paste and sort of trowel it on that stain, let it sit for a bit and it should pull that rust stain right out of it.

    PAT: OK.

    LESLIE: And you’ll find it in the paint aisle of the home centers.

    PAT: OK. Well, thank you very much for your help.

    TOM: That should lift the stain right out. You’re very welcome. Thanks so much for calling us at 1-888-MONEY-PIT.
