This guide will provide step-by-step procedures on how to remove rust from a vehicle hitch.

How Does This Happen?

The number one enemy of rust is moisture combined with oxygen over a long period of time. Eventually, the oxidation of the metal or steel on an object (in this case a vehicle hitch) will oxide, leading to corrosion and rust.

Why is This Fix Relevant?

In Florida, we are one of the most tropical states— this includes heavy rainfall. With the amount of moisture we endure, it is important to remove, as well as prevent, rust on our material objects and personal belongings.

Safety Precautions

The materials used for this fix, especially the naval jelly, need to avoid skin contact at all times. Proper safety precautions such as gloves and material disposal are key.
