Removed rust from racks using a dremel and sanding attachments. Used white dishwasher rack paint to cover sanded areas. Replaced missing dishwasher caps. Replaced severely rusted plate rack which couldn't be sanded and painted. This repair was easy, but the rusted areas of the rack have to be sanded down to bare metal before the paint is applied. The paint gives off strong fumes, so racks need to be painted outside or in an area that has lots of ventilation.
