de-rusting techniques

I was curious as to what everyone uses for de-rusting parts. I've been using electrolysis with minor success (slow going), and would like to get more ideas.

This guy on here, pretty sure it was RedJeepster1, did the electrolysis thing. IIRC his stuff came out real nice.
What I use depends on the size.
For smaller stuff I like EvapoRust.
Stuff is great. Literally safe if you splash some in your eye.
Says it right on the container. LOL.
I do help stuff along with a wire brush while soaking though.
And the stuff is reusable to a point.
So when you do something and are done you pour it in a separate container.
You don't want to contaminate the new stuff. But it will get to the point where it will not do its job anymore.
Other bigger stuff I blast too.
Here is a trailer hitch I was refreshing.
The rust inside the tubes. Poured a bunch of EvapoRust in there. Let it soak.
Did scrape the sides from time to time with a crappy screwdriver.
Came out pretty clean IMO.

The works toilet bowl cleaner.
Put some in a glass jar put your part in it and come back in a day or so.
If you have to change it out with fresh and repeat.
