Rusted dishwasher rack

The top rack on our dishwasher is slightly rusted. Since were buying a new one I'm trying to sell this one. Is there any safe way to make it look better other than replacing the rack itself?

Good luck trying to sell a used one, not much of a market for it.
Best to buy a new one but by the time you pay for it and the shipping may not be worth it.

Get the rust off then maybe try some white Plasti-Dip.

Rusted dishwasher rack

they do make a special rack/repair coating for the racks. Its kind of pricey though.

I agree- not worth the hassle/project time/effort/expense. Rust will only come back.
