Prevent Rust Rings on the Bathroom Vanity

Do you like to keep your cans of hairspray and/or deodorant on the bathroom vanity? Somehow water gets everywhere in the bathroom, the bottom of the can gets wet, and you’re left with an ugly orange ring on your bench-top.

Now you can remove the offending by sprinkling a little bicarb (baking soda) and then rubbing it with some vinegar on a cloth or sponge. However, I’m a big fan of the principle that mess prevention is better than cleaning. What can you do to prevent the ring in the first place?

  1. Find another home – Put the cans in a cupboard or on a shelf when they won’t get splashed. (This comes down to what space you have available and personal preference.)
  2. Sacrificial surface – Stand the cans on a tray, plate or a piece of fabric (go crazy with the modge podge and craft something up to match your decore!).
  3. Seal the cans yourself – coat the ring on the bottom of the can with clear nail polish.

One less thing to scrub when you’re cleaning the bathroom – sounds good to me!

    Rust-O-Less (www.Rust-O-Less.com) is a “patent-pending” silicone rubber cap that firmly fits around shaving cream cans and prevents rust ring stains formed in one’s shower or bathroom countertop.  Rust rings often form when water mixes with the metal base of shaving cream cans.

    As much fun as it is to spend an afternoon scrubbing your shower or bathroom to remove rust rings, there are many other activities someone would prefer to do in their free time.

    Analogy: 
    One ounce of PREVENTION is worth a a pound of CURE
    Using Rust-O-Less is equal to hours of cleaning

    Don’t get restless with rust rings, get Rust-O-Less!
