I have been using PB Blaster for dealing with moderately rusted automotive fasteners and rusted joints and splines. So far so good.

But are there better products out there, that every DIYer should have?

Seafoam's Deep Creep has worked pretty well for me.

Was never willing to pay the premium for kroil, finally broke down and bought a can last year. It really does seem significantly more effective than the pb blaster I used to use.

Liquid wrench works well, too. Not quite as effective as kroil.

Kroil (Aerokroil) here as well. Have tried others (PB, WD-40, Liquid Wrench, etc.), but Kroil has always worked better.

I use the WD40 rust penetrant. It's a special kind of WD40.
