How To Remove Rust Stains From Your Bathroom

Wondering how you can remove rust stains from your bathroom? You've found the right place!

What causes rust stains?

  1. Rust is formed by dissolved iron particles from water.
  2. Eventually, the water sits in pipes and on the surface of your tubs, sinks, and toilets and will begin to rust and leave its mark. It can also be a result of leaking taps as water is forced to pool around.
  3. An uneven bath surface can also be the cause of rust because the uneven surface causes an extensive pooling of water in some areas of the tub.

Non-chemical solutions are the safest and most convenient options when removing rust stains which appear on the surface of your sinks, tubs, and toilets.

  1. White vinegar and baking soda

To remove the stain using this solution, spray with white vinegar and sprinkle the baking soda on the surface which the rust has stained and with a ball of aluminium foil, scrub the area.

  1. Salt, lemon juice and toothbrush

Lemon contains citric acid which allows you to safely remove rust. This also avoids damaging the steel surface of which your stain occurs. Use a small amount of salt to sprinkle the rust stain and squeeze over some lemon or lime until the salt is soaked. Leave on the stain for 2-3 hours and then scrub and remove with a toothbrush.

  1. Shaw’s Pads

For smaller rust stains, an environmentally friendly way to remove rust is to use a Shaw’s Pad. All you need to do is dip the pad in water and gently scrub.

  1. Scouring pads

A standard kitchen scouring pad will allow you to diminish the stain by wetting the pad slightly. Make sure to thoroughly dry and be careful of not scratching any painted areas.

  1. Potato and dish soap

An unusual but effective way to scrub a stain right off is to use a potato and dish soap. Potatoes hold oxalic acid which assists in the breakdown of rust. Ensure the potato is cut in half and the cut end must be dipped into dish soap and then repeated until the stain is diminished.

Had a shower tap that would not turn off at 8.30pm. The plumber arrived quickly, rectified the issue and I couldn't be happier with the service. I also needed some Documents for my landlord/real estate agent and they were amazing with their after care. Can't recommend highly enough. Great company!
