Rust Doctor... Anyone tried it?

Ran across a site for Rust Doctor ( rust killer ).

Repair Rusty Rusting Rusted Metal Treatment Non Toxic Water Based Latex Rust Paint

Anyone tried this? How did it do?
I don't want to waste time - or- money.

Read a thread a few weeks ago ...a member used a rust inhibitor other than
POR 15 and was not happy with the results. They ended up going over the
inhibitor w/ POR.

Thank - you.

There are several such rust-converter products on the market. I've seen somewhat mixed results, to be honest. It still takes elbow grease to remove as much loose rust and scale as possible for best results. One thing for sure, wear latex gloves! It will stain your skin black!
It seems I love the mountains and deserts more than my friends do. I sure miss them!

Use POR-15 - the rust converter products will allow corrosion to creep laterally beneath the surface paint.

Maybe it's just Minnesota ice melt chemicals but I've seen steel on my truck nearly get perforated while the surface paint puffed out and the corrosion happened underneath the rust converter & cover paint.

They say it's non-toxic, but I'd still like to see a MSDS to confirm how safe it is.
