Rust Stain Removal

Remove rust stains from toilets, sinks and bathtubs quickly and easily with the resin bed cleaner used for water softeners.

By the DIY experts of The Family Handyman Magazine

Remove rust stains

Throw away the scouring powder and pick up a bottle of resin bed cleaner used for water softeners (about $11 at home centers). Just douse the rust with a foam brush. It’s amazing. Usually the rust will disappear in a few minutes. But long-term stubborn rust buildup may take a few treatments. We’ve even used it successfully on acrylic spas. You really don’t want to scour those! Just try it first on a small area to make sure it doesn’t damage the surface.
