Have you ever caught your stainless steel barrels get rust? Depending on what you store inside the drums, the rust may affect to the product. Here are some of the tips to remove the rust:
  1. Make a solution consisting of water and vinegar at 1 : 3 ratio respectively
  2. With a sponge, wipe the rust stain on your barrel or drum and leave it alone for about 5 minutes. This will allow the solution to work on the rust
  3. Cleanse it gently with a soft brush
  4. Wash it with cool water
  5. Squeeze some lemon juice and mix it with 2 tsp of borax. Apply the paste on the rest of the rust stain. This will help eliminating the obstinate rust and its stain left. Let it sit there for another 5 minutes
  6. Wash again with cool water
  7. Dry the stainless steel drum with a clean rag right away so that it does not form another batch of rust

Another way to prevent your barrels from rusting is to choose those equipped with the corrosion inhibitor or chemical-resistant epoxy-phenolic lining that helps barrels to withstand higher temperature and high chemical. Some of those drums are offered here (closed head steel barrel) and here (open head steel barrel with lid).
