    Hi

    My hinge's on sump cupboard door are rusting and rusting very badly? Is it safe for me to use Q20 on them? Iv got fish and coral in the tank.


    Thanks

    I don't see a prob, but safer option would be a grease or silicon lubricant

    be very sure you do not spray into direction of the sump.

    I would rather use oil that is in liquid form

    we used to use wheat germ oil or olive oil in Lab conditions, but now we discoverd a silicone "oil" that is use in the model car hobby for shock absorbers, does not gunk up so bad.

    Its fine, just have a rag ready, and spray kinda into the hinge with the rag around it, and make sure not to over spray, less is more
