Stain Buster — Rust



The best way to remove rust is with a commercial rust remover (available in supermarkets and hardware stores). These products contain toxic acids, so be sure to read and follow the directions carefully.


Upholstery and carpet

For small spots, try a commercial rust remover. For large or stubborn spots, call in a professional cleaner.


Worth a try

If other methods fail to lighten the rust stain, place the item in the sun, apply lemon juice to the stain, and sprinkle it with salt. As the item dries, keep reapplying the lemon juice and salt.


Bleach and rust alert

NEVER use a product with bleach on a rust stain. It will create a chemical reaction that sets the stain.
