How to Clean A Barbell

We’re specifically addressing rust here. Say you’ve had a barbell outside for a while and it starts to rust–don’t throw it out! That would be wasteful and also hurt the bank!

You know there’s a serious problem when that awesome designer sack that you splurged on to motivate you to actually go to the gym this year smells worse than the cat litter… or trash can… or garbage disposal… or compost. (Does anyone actually compost? No seriously, comment below.)
