TIPS FOR REMOVING RUST STAINS: Iron
rust stains can be removed from washable white fabrics by any
of the methods which follow. If the stain is on a colored material,
test your bleach* first in some inconspicuous place. Iron rust
stains can be impossible to remove once they are set in many
types of fabric.
Lemon juice will reduce or remove iron rust stains from many
fabrics if attended to soon after the stain was formed. Moisten
the stain with water, squeeze lemon juice directly onto it and
jet steam from a steam-iron onto it. Rinse with water and repeat
as many times as necessary. Another method is to sprinkle salt
on the stain, add lemon juice and dry the area. Repeat if necessary.
