There are a few other ways to remove rust stains, both commercial and DIY. The DIY solutions to a rust problem are not only the more natural way to go, but they are also the more convenient and budget-friendly route. You most likely have everything you need sitting in your pantry or in your fridge.

  1. White vinegar and baking soda are rust's kryptonite. Spray white vinegar on the rust stain, then sprinkle on baking soda and let it sit. To remove, scrub with a wire brush, steel wool, or aluminum foil.
  2. Baking soda can also team up with a raw potato to create an effective rust-busting scrubber.
  3. You can also use cola to remove rust! The only issue there is it can be rather sticky, so be prepared for an after use clean-up. 
  4. Another food-based solution involves ketchup and baking soda. Spray a mixture of water and baking soda onto the rust, then apply ketchup and let it soak for two hours. Rinse off and dry thoroughly.
  5. Mixing a paste of cream of tartar, baking soda, and hydrogen peroxide will also help rid you of a rust problem. Let the paste sit for an hour and either rinse or scrub off (depending on the severity of the rusting).

OMG! This seriously works! I just gave up on getting those rust stains out with bleach and vinegar and baking soda. All this time all I needed was a lemon and salt!
