    Ok, it seems a silly question, but I want to know if I keep TF toys with rust along with ones without rust, let's say in a plastic bin or in a display cabinet, will the clean toys be "infected"?

    Thanks in advance. :)

    I'd say that unless the metal parts were touching other metal parts, you have nothing to worry about. Oh, and get some WD40 and scrub that rust off. Carefully.

    ^This.

    Rust is autocatalytic, not contagious.

    Most screws that would rust are recessed into the plastic. I don't see why this would be a problem.

    Is it cosmic rust or just regular rust? :p
