A rust proof shower caddy will last longer, stay cleaner, and will not rust.
Best Rust Proof Shower Caddies
What Causes Rust?
Rust is caused when moisture touches an object with iron in it. The oxygen in the water bonds with the iron atoms and creates an iron oxide molecule. These molecules remain suspended in the water, but when the water is dried off or evaporates the particles stay behind and form the reddish, crusty stuff we call rust. Iron and steel are two metals known for rusting. Copper and bronze don’t rust, but they can corrode and turn a green color (like the Statue of Liberty) if they’re allowed to corrode long enough.
The best way to avoid rust on a shower caddy is to buy a caddy that does not have iron or steel in it.
What Shower Caddies Are Not Rustproof?
Any caddies that are made of iron or steel will rust. Additionally, many caddies will say they are chrome or bronze. These caddies are often not solid chrome, or solid bronze, since those are expensive metals. Instead, most chrome caddies are an iron metal (which will rust) with a chrome coating (chrome does not rust). So, these caddies are rust resistant. However, if the chrome ever cracks, breaks, or flakes off, it will expose the metal underneath to water, which will lead to rust. These caddies are often cheaper, but at some point you will find rust on your plated or coated caddies.
Fortunately, we have done the work for you, and you can be sure to get 100% rust proof caddies by viewing any caddies in our Rust Proof Shower Caddy category.
