So you need to know how to get rust stains out of white clothes. Don’t worry, I’m not going to ask why you need to know how to remove rust from whites when you could have been wearing something old and worn out when working on your old bike. Instead, I will share with you what removes rust from white clothes and how removing rust marks from white clothing will make them like new again. So just follow these instructions to remove rust spots from white clothes once and for all.

How To Get Rust Stain Off Of White Clothes Naturally

A handy and all natural way of removing rust marks from white clothing is to make a paste of lemon juice and salt and rub it gently into the stain. Then let the paste set there awhile so the acid in the vinegar can dissolve the rust. Then rinse well.

If you don’t have any lemon juice, you can also try soaking the stain in white vinegar. This will also remove rust spots from white clothes.

You should know that either one of these methods should be safe on most fabrics. However, if you are dealing with something delicate you might want to try them out on an inconspicuous spot first.

How To Remove Rust From Whites With A Stronger Chemical

If these techniques have failed, you may wonder what removes rust from clothes, even if it is not natural. You can use the specially formulated product CLR to remove rust spots from white clothes. However, this contains strong chemicals and will harm delicate fabrics. If you choose to remove rust spots from white clothes with CLR, use as little as possible and watch it closely. As soon as the stain is gone, rinse it well and launder as usual.

Another less powerful but still not natural method of removing rust marks from white clothing is cheap hair spray. Spray the stain well and rinse as soon as it disappears.

Now that you know how to get rust stains off clothes, I wish you a long and happy life working on cars in your pristine white jumpsuit. Yes, even this is possible since you know how to remove rust from whites.

    After you put the lemon juice on, lay it out in the sun. This helps boost the bleaching power of the lemon juice and makes it even better at fading the rust stains.
