My 11 year old daughter left her bobby pins on the bathroom counter. Any ideas on how I can remove rust stains would be appreciated. I knew not to try any bleach as I heard that sets it so I haven’t tried anything yet.

  • Baking soda with vinegar or lemon juice is always my first try. Jif is a good try as well, so is CRL and a renovator for the car can work as well

  • Great! Really interesting comments read on this!

  • I used baking soda, it’s fantastic & works for a lot if things!

  • a bit of creme cleanser worked for me

  • How did you go? CLR usually works for me!

  • get denture tablets and let them fizz on the stain.

  • CLR is very good at removing rust stains. Otherwise it’s the trust bicarb paste again!

  • there are some good comments here

  • nail polish remover . .

  • Do we ask how you went?

  • I’d try a paste of lemon juice & bicarb soda. Let it sit for a while then polish gently.

  • CLR is the best leave on for 2-3 minutes. Then wash off thoroughly. If there is a stain still repeat. Go gently do not scrub with steel wool use a makeup pad and run gently.

  • marble paste with a bathroom enjoy glove if you own them otherwise gumption and elbow grease
