Rusty cupboard

  1. Greetings to everyone,

    They have brought us a rusty cupboard from another school. The rust is only inside the cupboard, so

    • How should I handle the situation? Scrub it with iron wool? Paint it?

    • Which kind of chemicals should I avoid putting inside as long as it is rusty?

  2. I cleaned one of mine off and then painted with Hammerite.
  3. I can imagine that if the rust was a lot then a rusty cloud would appear, did you wear anything for protection?
  4. Just vacuumed it, hammerite does not need much prep.
