My dumbbells and barbells are rusting, is it safe to use this equipment? My friend said it’s dangerous to breathe in rust, so I am concerned for my health now your friend is ok even after all that lead paint they ate.

It is just that a common tetanus example is a rusty nail. Because a nail outside, exposed to soil containing the tetanus causing bacteria, Clostridium retain, will often be rusty, and also provide a means of penetration and hence avenue of infection.
When you start buying weights, sometimes you have to settle for rusty dumbbells to score a great deal. If you’re in a budget, don’t let the rust deter you from buying affordable dumbbells.
(Make sure the container you choose is large enough to hold the dumbbells you want to clean.) Most people tend to recommend the use of a stainless steel brush to help with this step.

Tip: Make sure you store the container in a place where you don’t spend too much time in, as this solution smells bad. Drying the dumbbells ensures that you get rid of all the moisture to prevent more rust from developing.

The outer coating that dumbbells have is one of the reasons why they can’t catch rust easily at first.
However, once that outer coating is chipped away with usage and time, developing rust becomes quite easy. One of the reasons that can cause the outer dumbbell coating to get chipped is improper storage.
This can cause the coating to wear down and, in turn, make it easier for rust to build upon the dumbbells. Oiling your dumbbells gives them an essential protective coat that safeguards them from rust.
The first thing you need to do on a daily basis is wiping your dumbbells with a damp cloth, especially after a workout. If you prefer a thorough clean, you can use a mixture of water and mild dish soap.
Drying with a cloth as opposed to air-drying prevents rust or corrosion from building up. Using harsh chemicals on dumbbells can damage the outer coating and expose the weights to rust.
With the above steps, you can easily remove rust and restore your dumbbells back to their original look. Don’t forget to make maintaining your dumbbells a regular thing, as this will help prevent rust from developing on them.
Soak paper towels in vinegar and then wrap them around your barbell. This will prevent the vinegar from evaporating, which causes “flash rust to form on the barbell.
Generally, flash rust is a result of small iron particles that have become lodged on another metal surface. Fortunately, preventing flash rust is a simple issue of time management in nearly all cases.
You can soak smaller things like earrings, wipe it onto a surface with an old cloth, or just pour it directly over rust spots or bolts and screws that have rusted together. To use, soak the metal in white vinegar for a few hours and then scrub the rusty paste off.
Submerge the rusted object in undiluted white vinegar. If the object is too large to do so, liberally spray or dab vinegar over the rusted area.
Some claim Coke can be used to remove rust, so it comes as no surprise that it could potentially kill pests too. Devotees of this mention wash hair before dousing it from roots to tip with two liters of Coke (!).
They then let hair dry without rinsing, presumably ignoring the inevitable stickiness. It may sound like an urban legend, but plenty of folks swear that Coke dissolves toilet rust rings.
Here's how: Pour a full can around the rim so that it fully coats the bowl, then let it sit for at least an hour to allow the acids in the soda to break down the stains.
