Golf clubs need rust removal to operate well and last longer. Here are ten methods to efficiently eliminate golf club rust:
Before starting, gather a bucket, warm water, mild dish soap, a stiff-bristle brush or toothbrush, a wire brush, aluminum foil, white vinegar, baking soda, a towel or cloth, and clubhead covers.
Before rust removal, wear gloves to protect your hands from chemicals.
Soak clubheads in a pail of warm water with a few drops of mild dish soap. Soak clubheads in soapy water for 10-15 minutes. This loosens rust and makes removal simpler.
After soaking, scrape the clubheads with a stiff-bristle brush or toothbrush, focusing on the rusted regions. This removes surface rust.
Use a wire brush to carefully scrape stubborn rust. Avoid scratching the clubface and soleplate.
Crumple aluminum foil into a ball for stubborn corrosion. Scrub rust with it in warm, soapy water. Aluminum foil removes rust without hurting the clubhead.
If the rust persists, use equal parts white vinegar and water. Submerge clubheads in this solution 30-60 minutes. Vinegar acid dissolves rust.
After soaking in vinegar, scrape clubheads again with a brush or aluminum foil to remove any leftover rust.
Remove vinegar residue by thoroughly rinsing the clubheads with clean water. Dry them completely with a towel or rag.
