Has anybody hear used this Evapo-Rust on good old Aurora Model Motoring track to get rid of surface rust on the rails and connectors?

I've got a lot of track and I'm looking for a reasonable way to clean track!?

Thanks!!

CLR (calcium lime rust) can remove surface rust just by wiping or soaking.

If you are using an ultrasounic cleaner on track you can start with vinegar followed by CLR a drimmel with afine grit nylon flap wheel just don't try coloa it will melt the track. Ha ha I learned the hard way.
