Default Rust colored stains on props

We used Sno Ball on our props to remove the hard water stains. How we have a rust colored stain on the props. Is there anything we can do to remove the stains from the props?

I used to try to get all of the surface rust stains off completely after a weekend, but Bblades informed me that because the blades had been thinned toward the ends, it might cause them to lose what I had paid for labbing. Now I just spray with WD40 after using.

These are factory props, not labbed. Would that make a difference? The rust spots showed up only after using the Sno Ball.

The acid in toilet bowl cleaner, more than likely, ate the finish or any polish that was on there.

We use Sno Ball on exhaust tips to clean them all the time. We have never had a problem on the tips. Should we not use this anymore? Will polishing the props stop the rush stains?
