Good for simple jobs, otherwise difficult to use.

My experience with this product is that it *will* remove rust. However, you gotta do it keeping certain things in mind.
One, it requires more than a thin film to truly remove rust. I found that this jelly likes to form either thick blobs or thin film. It is the thick blobs that beat the crap out of the rust. They generally require about 15-45mins to do their magic, depending on how bad the rust is. I could not get the jelly to cohere in any other form.
Two, it requires a surface horizontal enough for the blobs to not slide off. This jelly does NOT stick to vertical surfaces as anything other than a useless film. If you are trying to apply this to a vertical surface, you will have to hold a blob against the target area, and for certain jobs this is horribly impractical.
Overall, this product was a bit of a disappointment, because I had been hoping to use it on my truck undercarriage. If you just need to clean a easily accessible horizontal surface, or tools, this product will work great. Any application more challenging than that, I cannot recommend this product, sadly.
To date, I have not found any true naval jelly. The kind that I have seen variously described as being able to stick to any surface in any orientation. That most certainly does not describe this product.
