I havent been cleaning my pedal and guitar knobs for awhile and i noticed that they now have this white"rust" of some sort. The knobs i am talking about are those normal metal collar knobs that some guitars have and pedals too. So is there any way to remove it? the pedals not mine so i am kind of worried now lol...

Hmm, in some cases you can just use a soft brush to get it off. How much rust is there? Is it just sort of a film of white residue or is it quite dark?

It's probably just dirt, I use an old toothbrush to clean that kinda stuff.
