Just sent you that info as a PM Steve. Here it is for anyone else considering putting seat belts into Evapo-Rust. By the way, this will save your wifes dishwasher for anyone who's contaminated one of those trying to clean seat belts.

I kinda fluked into this because I was having so much success with different things in Evapo-Rust. I only had a partial set of mismatched deluxe headed belts and thought what the heck...try it? I can't lose much if it harms the labels so in they went? I tossed four belts straight into a clean fresh bucket of the stuff and left it there for about 24 hours.

As I pulled them out I could see the labels were cleaner looking and none of the printed ink was disturbed and the belts looked really clean, so mission accomplished right? I took them outside and power washed them under a fine spray nozzle at close range to clear out the webbing and rinse them thoughly and they came out looking awesome.

I then hung them to dry on the fence and these things looked like brand new once they had dried and were still soft and flexible to the touch. No adverse effects on the silk-like labels or printed ink. Just be sure to rinse them well as I did. I have since been told that a soapy rinse does well to dunk them after EV and then a light rinse under the hose or the tap? I think either would be fine. I have since done a bunch more and they all look awesome as I have now have a complete set which are now clean. No odor or anything after being rinsed. And no rust issues with the inside rollers that weren't so good before the heads were dunked along with the belts.

Yeah, the OLD crockpot. Actually pressure cooker. The timer crapped out and I had to figure out something to do with it. Works good to phosphate bolts too.
