Effective Ways to Remove Rusty Stains

Rust is something formed when the metal reacts with water and oxygen. It not only destroys the metal but it can be very harmful for your clothes, too because a rusty stain is really hard to remove. That's why we will give you several tips on how to deal with such a problem when a stain occur on different types of fabrics.

Some of the upholstery cleaning services shared with us how they recommend that you should act when there is a stain made of rust on your carpet or sofa. If you don't want to use any chemicals, then you just need to make a solution of water and baking soda. Put it on the stain and let it sit for several hours; use carpet or upholstery shampoo to clean in the end.

When the stain is on your clothes, you need the same solution but use lemon juice instead of water. Test the received solution on hidden area first to avoid damaging the fabric and then apply on the stain. Put the cloth in the laundry after that and wash it with normal laundry detergent.

You probably have happened to deal with rust on your metal bake-ware, too. The only decision in this case is to use some of the powdered commercial detergents. You should apply it on the rusted place and rub using a piece of potato.

It is essential to remember that before the upholstery cleaning, you should read the manufacturer's instructions as you may ruin the fabric.
