Some DIY techniques to help you remove rust stains from clothes yourself.

Lemon Juice

The easiest method to remove rust stains from clothes is using the readily available item – lemon. Pour the freshly squeezed lemon juice directly on the rust stain. Let it be soaked by the cloth for 10-15 mins. The rust stain will start fading after some time. Wash the cloth with water to remove remnants of the stain and then launder it as usual.

White Vinegar

Place the stained cloth on a dry towel. Pour white vinegar directly on the stain and make sure to cover it completely. Let it stay for around half an hour and then rinse thoroughly using the usual laundering method. Leave the cloth in sunlight for sometime.

Salt and Lemon Juice

Make a mixture of salt and freshly squeezed lemon juice. Apply the paste on the rust stain. Place the cloth in sunlight and let it stay until the stain is completely removed. In case, a hint of the stain is still present, repeat the same process again to remove the rust stain completely. Then, rinse the cloth thoroughly.

We used the Rust Stain Remover by Bellinzoni for removing old rust stains from taps in the kitchen. Apply the product directly on the stain. Remember to always wear gloves while applying it to protect the skin from irritation. Wait for the applied product to turn violet and then rinse using water. For older stains, let the product stay for a longer time. In case, hints of the stain are still present, repeat the process again.
