We recoated the dishwasher racks in a rental a few years back. We sanded off the worst of the rust, bought dishwasher rack coating at the hardware store, and applied a single coat. The key is to let it dry at least 48 hours but then it was as good as new. We also bought plastic tips that cover the ends of the dishwasher tines (I’m sure that’s not what they’re called). Not sure if this is a longterm solution – we moved out after a year, though, and it was still holding strong.
