How To Remove Rust Stains
How to remove rust stains from sinks, tubs, and toilets
Are you noticing harsh rust stains on your sinks, tubs, or toilets? Here at Rodger’s Plumbing, we know that such stains can be unsightly, luckily most staining can be successfully removed. We’ve provided some quick and easy options to successfully remove rust stains from your household.
Pumice Sticks – Pumice scouring sticks are great tools to remove stains from porcelain. All you have to do is wet the bar and rub the bar directly on the stain; the pumice paste that evolves will clean and polish the surface. Be sure to rinse off the pumice paste with water after scrubbing.
Lemon Juice and Salt – If you’re looking for a quick home remedy, that does not require a trip to the hardware store, try lemon juice and salt! This option works great on flat surfaces such as sinks and tub drains. Simply mix the two ingredients together, let the mixture sit on the surface for at least 30 minutes (or up to a few hours), and scrub away with a tooth brush. Rinse well with water.
Chemical Cleaners – Chemical cleaners such as The Works or Zud are great options for removing rust stains. Simply spray or pour the product on the problem area, let it set properly, and scrub the residue away with an abrasive surface or cleaning brush. Again, be sure to rinse properly with water.
