What is a good method for removing small rust minor pitting ? Is there currently a more or less harmful liquid commercial paste or other type rust remover available and where is it to be found. Embarassed

Pitting is a hole, you can't remove the hole, all you can do is stop the rust.

The best stuff for stopping rust are the detergent type products like Rusteco, Evapo Rust and Metal Rescue. There may be others out now too. They do not contain acid, so they remove no metal, and are environmentally friendly as well, and can be disposed of almost anywhere, even as fertilizer in the garden.

Metal Rescue was available at Home Depot. EvapoRust is lots of places, Google them.

If its on chrome try tin foil and water. It worked great for me.

Bill, If the rust has made it through the chrome then it is pitted and it will be there regardless. There is nothing that can fix that. What is gone is gone.

There are some posts about repairing those pits. It might be a sticky in the Tips section.

If there is still the mirror type luster on chrome, tin foil or 0000 steel wool will cloud it up good with micro scratches and they'll be there forever, or until it's re-chromed. But the OP didn't mention chrome once in his post.

Yeah, I did a double take as well.

The only way to fix pits is to fill them after completely stopping the rust, or take the surrounding metal down to a level lower than the pits by sanding or grinding. The metal must be thick enough to allow it and it will be thinner when finished.
