Removing Rust Stains from Sinks and Showers

My cleaning frenzy continues….

I have been super thrilled to find a product that actually exceeds expectations (which is rare) and I want you to know about it.

Removing Rust Stains from a Bathtub

Did you happen to read How to Get Rust Stains Off a Bathtub?

Well, I used the same product in my son’s shower stall. This time, I used the cleaner on travertine tiles! Had no idea if it would work or not, but I was willing to try anything to remove these horrible stains.

Removing Rust Stains from a Shower Stall


Well…take a look at this!

This product really is amazing. Above and beyond what I expected and minimal scrubbing required! I do caution you to be careful and try a small area of your bathroom stone, wall, floor first to see how it reacts to your tub, sink, etc.

I also caution you that this product is very slippery, so be very careful if you have to walk inside the tub or shower.

Removing Rust Stains From Sinks

But, when I used it on my son’s sink…it didn’t do as good a job. Not sure why, I don’t have all the answers, I’m still trying to figure it out too, must have something to do with the material it adheres to (I’m guessing).

Luckily, my water softener installers gave me a product they use to remove rust stains from sinks and toilets. So I tried this product and…….

It worked great! I poured a bit on the stains and washed off fairly quickly…did not let it sit.

Magic! The bottle has warning labels on it – being dangerous on skin, etc. So if you do decide to try it, use with extreme caution and wear gloves, goggles and don’t let liquid sit. Wash off quickly to avoid damage to countertops, sinks etc.

I made a video when cleaning the shower, you may enjoy watching. Check it out HERE.

Have you tried this product, would love to hear your experience. I will continue to pass along cleaning hacks as I discover them. I’m on the hunt for a product to remove rust from clothing, when I find that…I will let you know.
