Hi I'm Rachel Yatuzis, and I'm going to teach about removing rust from the commode. Rust usually is around these screws, sometimes it's on the inside, but usually these screws right here are what gets so rusty. And it's hard to avoid, it seems like you know it's inevitable. One tip for keeping them from rusting is put clear fingernail polish over them when you do get a new toilet, and that should keep them from rusting, it should protect them. You may have to reapply the clear fingernail polish every couple of months, maybe every six months, but if you do end up with rust you want to have some Barkeeper's Friend handy. Let me just make a little pile of it right there, and get a wet toothbrush and scrub those screws. Barkeeper's Friend is so wonderful when it comes to removing rust from anything. Even if you have rust around the bottom rim this stuff is going to get rid of it. It's really a life saver and you can just you know scrape the remainder into the toilet. You want to rinse a little with water when you're done, maybe just wipe it with a wet sponge, but that'll get rid of it. I'm Rachel Yatuzis and that is how you remove rust from a commode.
