|Timely! I just posted on how to get rust off a metal garden ornament. Using Pam should be easier than motor oil although not sure if motor oil would be more effective.|

|Thank you for this tip. What it did make me wonder is if Pam is strong enough to remove rust from my tools then I have second thoughts about cooking my food in it!! What does Pam have in it that removes rust?|

|Wikipedia said "mostly canola oil", but this LabelWatch site says there are at least two kinds of PAM, one with olive oil and one with palm oil.
Both have an aerosol propellant. Maybe that helps "foam" the rust off?
My guess is that any kind of oil will soften rust and slow down future rusting.
The "Olive Oil" PAM has some:
Organic Grain Alcohol (Added for Clarity),
and Lecithin from Soybeans
PAM "for grilling" has some:
Mono and diglycerides (emulsifiers often used in baked goods and peanut butt er)
Dimethylpolysiloxane (Defoaming agent: Used in food processing, )
Just because it ISN'T complicated doesn't mean I can't MAKE it complicated!
